Dioctyl Phthalate (DOP)

  • Description

Description

We are offering Dioctyl Phthalate, which is an organic compound. Dioctyl Phthalate is the most widely used general purpose Plasticizers for the manufacture of flexible plastics (especially with PVC). It is insoluble in water and has a good stability to heat and ultraviolet light, a broad range of compatibility, and excellent resistance to hydrolysis. Dioctyl Phthalate is used in PVC, polyvinyl acetate, rubbers, cellulose plastics and polyurethane. End application includes PVC flooring and wall coverings, expanded leather, PVC foams, films, sealing and adhesive systems based on polyurethane or polysulphide, PVC based adhesives and paint binders. It offers the best combination of properties such as compatibility, low volatility, flexibility, excellent electrical characteristics, heat and ultra violet light resistance, permanence, low temperature flexibility and low water extraction. DOP as a versatile primary plasticizer, has made significant contribution to the phenomenol growth of PVC Compound and its allied applications.

Dioctyl Phthalate is the most important “phthalate,” being the diester of phthalic acid and the branched-chain 2-ethylhexanol. This colourless viscous liquid is soluble in oil, but not in water. It possesses good plasticizing properties. Being produced on a massive scale by many companies, it has acquired many names and acronyms, including BEHP and di-2-ethyl hexyl phthalate. It is also called as DOP. We are one of the leading importers & suppliers of Dioctyl Phthalate in India.
