CITROFLEX® PLASTICIZERS

A Phthalate-free Approach To Plasticity

Citroflex® citric acid esters provide a wide range of benefits when used as plasticizers with aqueous- and solvent-based polymers. Citroflex® esters offer formulators a unique combination of environmentally friendly features by combining efficient plasticization with low toxicity, high flash points and rapid biodegradability.

WHY SWITCH TO CITROFLEX® PLASTICIZERS?

  • Readily biodegraded by microorganisms in soil
  • Low order of chronic toxicity
  • Imparts the proper balance of properties and low toxicity to PVC

 

HOW CAN CITROFLEX® BE USED IN YOUR INDUSTRY?

Citroflex® 2 and A-2 grades are bio-based, biodegradable solvent carriers in perfumes and nail polish, film-strengthening agents in hair sprays and nail polishes, and actives in deodorants. » Learn More

Due to its limited oil solubility, grease-resistance of polymers formulated with Citroflex® 2 is enhanced.  Citroflex® A-2 is recommended for use with cellulosic derivatives. It offers low warping characteristics with cellulose acetate.» Learn More

A low-toxicity replacement for phthalate plasticizers.» Learn More

Citroflex® A-4 grade is a replacement for di-2-ethylhexyl adipate (DEHA) for food contact applications, providing an alternate for DEHA where there has been some concern for the public health.  It provides many improvements over dibutyl phthalate in cellulose nitrate films, including lower volatility, better resistance to yellowing, and better adhesion to metals.» Learn More
