ADVANTAGES

  • DOTP (Dioctyl Terephthalate) does not contain esters of ortho-phthalate which are banned or restricted.
  • Based on technical data gives better results than the equivalent products.
  • In comparison to other phthalate products gives the best results economically.
  • Does not lead to any changes in the chemical structure of the polymer.
  • Provides the desired change in the physical and mechanical properties.
  • Generaly all the polymeric materials can expand easily and quickly.
  • Prevent cracks in lac application, increases durability, provides a smooth surface.
  • Provides elasticity in the desired product.
  • Provides electrical resistance.
