The Chemical Company’s (TCC) ChemFlexx DOA (Diethylhexyl adipate or DOA) is a plasticizer with a wide range of applications. ChemFlexx DOA is flexible. DOA is a non-phthalate plasticizer. DOA has excellent low temperature and PVC plastisol characteristics. Its consumption is the highest among all cold-resistant. DOA, dioctyl adipate is a primary plasticizer resulting from the esterification of 2- Ethyl Hexanol with Adipic Acid, it is the most important in the adipate group.

Plasthall DOA plasticizeer a highly efficient monomeric plasticizsr plasticizer, which imparts excellent low-temperature flexibility to compounds. Although many of these alternatives show promising application potential, significant exposure may lead to adverse health effects.

Food grade adipic acid is used as gelling aid, acidulant, plzsticizer and buffering agent. Please call for details. It is a low-toxicity, biodegradable, light colored, oily liquid generally used as a plasticizer for PVC. Compounds plasticized with Dpa DOA show very good heat and light stability. ChemFlexx DOA is flexible at low temperatures, features plasticizzer electrical properties as well as resistance to weathering and stability to heat.

Almost all of the commercial adipic acid is produced from cyclohexane through two sequent oxidation processes. Other types of plasticizers have been used through the years, but in the late s, phthalates were introduced because they were believed to be less toxic.

May cause skin, eye, and respiratory tract irritation. Bis 2-ethylhexyl adipate; Adipic acid di 2-ethylhexyl ester. Esters are formed by removal of water from an acid and an alcohol, e. They are used as solvent carriers or coupling agents for polyurethane and photographic films.

Most of these alternative plasticizers are not well studied with regard to their potential effects on human health and the environment. Cyclohexane can be prepared by the hydrogenation of benzene.

Its derivatives, acyl halides, anhydrides, esters, amides and nitriles, are used in making target products such as flavoring agents, internal plasticizers, pesticides, dyes, textile treatment agents, fungicides, and pharmaceuticals through further reactions of substitution, catalytic reduction, metal hydride reduction, diborane reduction, keto formation with organometallic reagents, electrophile bonding at oxygen, and condensation. ChemFlexx DOA features flexibility at low temperatures, good electrical properties, resistance to weathering, and good stability to heat.

The most commonly measured physical effects include melt viscosity, elasticity modulus, and the glass transition temperature. A number of substances have been identified as alternative plasticizers. They are used as intermediates to produce other chemical compounds. Electrical insulation Electrical jacketing Film and sheeting for use in low temperatures Low viscosity plastisols Phthalate alternative Strip-coating compounds.

Adipic acid has two carboxylic acid, -COOH, groups, which can yield two kinds of salts. In addition to their application as alternative PVC plasticizers, these xoa are also being plastkcizer as solvents and fixatives in cosmetic products, inks, adhesives, and other consumer products.

Further, nothing contained herein shall plasticlzer taken as any inducement or recommendation to use, manufacture or sell that may infringe any patents or any other proprietary rights now or hereafter in existence, nor to imply compliance with any regulatory requirements. DOA is an ester of 2-ethylhexanol and adipic acid.

The product is delivered in metal drums, totes, bulk containers and in plassticizer tank trucks and rail cars. Longer chain esters are used as lubricants offering stable lubricity, corrosion protection, biodegradability, and performance properties at both high and low temperatures. Can’t find what you’re looking for?


Soluble in aceton, ether, ethanol. There is also evidence of effects on the kidney, liver, spleen, testes, and uterus. The light colored, oily liquid is used to manufacture clear films for food packaging applications.

Plasticized PVC polymer is found in a wide variety of products including food packaging, construction materials, toys, and medical devices. National Library of Medicine – Dioctyl adipate. DOA is used to produce clear films for food packaging applications. In other words, they make the polymer more workable.

Other common plasticizers include adipates, polymerics and trimellitates. Electrical insulation Electrical jacketing Film and sheeting for use in low temperatures Low viscosity plastisols Strip-coating compounds.

All ProductsC. The toxicological properties have not been fully investigated. Drug Information Plasticiezr U. The use of plasticizers began in the mid s when castor oil was added to Cellulose Nitrate. Statement on Brexit Developments.


It is used in making polyester polyols for polyurethane systems. The chains can then move more freely relative to one another, hence reducing the stiffness of the polymer. Adipic acid is used in manufacturing plasticizers and lubricants components.

Carboxylic plasitcizer esters are used as in a variety of direct and indirect applications. Short chain esters are used as high-boiling, biodegradable, low-toxicity solvents and antiperspirants. Most evidence on human health effects is derived from laboratory studies as few epidemiologic studies have been conducted on these materials.
