DINP plasticizer is the largest-volume general-purpose high-molecular-weight plasticizer for PVC , providing the opportunity for cost savings with a good balance of properties. As shown below, it is an excellent substitute for Di (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DOP) in most flexible PVC applications.
DINP plasticizer is safe for use: It is not carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic for reproduction category 1 or 2. It does not fulfill the criteria of a substance having endocrine-disrupting properties.
Better resistance to aging, increasing product life
Easier plastisol coating, spraying and dipping
Higher permanency and improved resistance for cold outdoor conditions
Compatibility with secondary plasticizers for further cost savings
Low volatility for reduced process emissions and improved working conditions
Lower density and lower energy consumption with higher extrusion outputs compared to DOP
