Perstorp intoduces Innovative non phthalate plasticizer for sensitive applications

September 09/2013

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Perstorp, pioneer in formalin chemistry, plastics and surface materials, has launched Pevalen as a non-phthalate plasticizer meeting market demand in sensitive applications, as per Plastemart.

Pevalen is a plasticizer based on well-proven, reliable chemistry. As a non-phthalate plasticizer alternative it does not compromise performance in any way. In fact performance is equal to or better than other plasticizers used today.

Pevalen is very efficient, which means your formulation requires less plasticizer. In combination with low migration and volatility the performance is unmet by other plasticizers. It also displays excellent UV stability making it a perfect choice in applications exposed to sunlight. It is easier and faster to blend with PVC than most other plasticizers. This reduces processing time, helps to increase capacity of the existing production line, and maintains a low production cost ensuring a robust manufacturing process.

It is a well-proven product that is REACH-registered. It is based on food-approved raw materials and the process for obtaining food contact approval for Pevalen is underway. As a high performance non-phthalate plasticizer Pevalen contributes to a more sustainable PVC solution.

As MRC wrote previously, Evonik has recently launched a new generation of PVC plasticizers under the ELATUR product brand. With this strategic portfolio expansion, Evonik is consistently developing its range of sustainable plasticizers.

Plasticizers are a vital component in soft PVC plastics where durability and flexibility are important properties - in flooring, artificial leathers, tarpaulins, toys, automotive interiors, and cables.

Perstorp is one of the world leaders in various sectors of the specialty chemicals market, it's pioneer in formalin chemistry, plastics and surface materials. Perstorp was founded in 1881 and is controlled by PAI partners,a major European private equity company. The company has around 1,500 employees in with 22 production plants in Europe, Asia and North America.
