Acetyl tributyl citrate Usage

This product is food packaging, medical polyvinyl chloride, precision equipment packaging with vinyl chloride / vinylidene chloride copolymer of the main plasticizer; is vinyl chloride – vinyl acetate copolymer, slow release agent, latex adhesive Plastic agent; also tinplate surface treatment of lubricants, air fresheners, deodorants, an important component of ink.


ATBC in the 1970s has been widely used in medical machinery, and as for the use of PVC plasma bags, infusion tubes, etc., and now to ease the sheet of plasticizer. Currently widely used in the United States, Britain, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, Italy, New Zealand and other dozens of developed countries, which replaced the original toxic phthalate esters. ATBC can be biodegradable plastic, it can be 90 parts of polylactone, AJI was two 10, anti-blocking agent Siq content of 99%, 7 2 1 diameter, smooth powder C17 a qZ aliphatic phenol amine 1 composition. ATBC can also be made of heat shrinkable stretch film, is made using the above formula 0.13 ~ film. When the ATBC and the average molecular weight of 137,000 polylactide into biodegradable plastic. ATBC can be used as a lubricant, it can make the tinplate pressure when the container surface smooth and beautiful


ATBC is a non-toxic, odorless main plasticizer. ATBC as the main plasticizer, with a strong solubility, oil resistance, light resistance, and a good anti-mildew. It is compatible with most cellulose, polyvinyl chloride, polyvinyl acetate, etc., and is mainly used as a plasticizer for cellulose resins and vinyl resins. In children’s toys, with the DOP toxicity data is constantly being found, more and more areas prohibit the use of DOP, and ATBC non-toxic, tasteless, transparent and good, low water extraction rate, plasticized plastic products through its excellent performance , Good heat-sealing, secondary processing convenience, especially suitable for children’s toys as the main plasticizer use. In the meat packaging, ATBC non-toxic, can be used as meat packaging materials, and DOP can not be used in high-fat content of food packaging. And ATBC tasteless, will not cause food odor, the plasticized plastic products through its transparent, good printing performance.

In medical products, ATBC non-toxic, water extraction rate is low, the human body is no potential harm, by its plasticized medical products high temperature, low temperature performance. ATBC as an excellent plasticizer not only meet the conditions of non-toxic plasticizer, can also be used in general plastic products. The loss of volatiles with ATBC plasticized cellulosic film is low, and has a relatively strong adhesion to metals compared to DBP-containing cellulose film.
