Di Octyl Phththalate
Dioctyl Phthalate (DOP) is a general use Plasticizer
Dioctyl Phthalate DOP is a colourless clear liquid. We are keeping ready stock of materials at KANDLA, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Visakhapatnam, Dubai DOP is most common plasticizer product used in the production of flexible polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic. Dioctyl Phthalate is one of the most widely used plasticizers in PVC due to its low cost.
Plasticizers can be added to wallboard stucco mixtures to improve workability. In order to reduce the energy in drying wallboard, less water is added, which makes the gypsum mixture very unworkable and difficult to mix, necessitating the use of plasticizers, water reducers or dispersants.
DOP is a general-purpose plasticizer and long-time industry standard known for its good stability to heat and ultraviolet light, and broad range of compatibility for use with PVC resins. Dioctyl Phthalate can also be used as dielectric and hydraulic fluids. DOP is also a solvent for many chemicals, such as in glowsticks.
