EASTMAN CHEMICAL CO.: Plasticizer

October 9, 2013

This company has expanded its non-phthalate plasticizer portfolio with the addition of Eastman Effusion™ plasticizer, reportedly an extremely efficient fast-fusing solution that can enable increased production line speeds and lower processing temperatures. Effusion can be used in resilient sheet, luxury vinyl tile, vinyl composite tile, and PVC-backed carpet. It has reportedly been shown to have advantages in both efficiency and rheology to standard phthalate plasticizers that this industry has relied upon.

“Eastman Effusion plasticizer is an effective replacement for traditional phthalate fast-fusing plasticizers,” said Carlos Alvarado, business manager, Specialty Plasticizers.
