Plasticizers Are Widely Used In Industry


Plasticizer, also known as plasticizing agent (Taiwanese Chinese, is the mainland Chinese plasticizer). Is the industry is widely used in polymer materials additives, in plastic processing added this material, can make its flexibility enhanced, easy to process, can be used for industrial purposes.

Plasticizer is a kind of polymer material additive, its variety is a colorless, tasteless liquid, widely used in industry. Often used in plastics, rubber, adhesives, cellulose, resins, medical equipment, cables and other thousands of products. The main varieties of epoxy plasticizers: epoxidized soybean oil, Plasticizer epoxidized acetyl linseed oil methyl ester, epoxy furfuryl oleate ester and so on. In PVC products, the characteristics of plasticity and stability are widely used. Epoxy plasticizer is a kind of good plasticizer, Plasticizer which is produced by the oxidation reaction of the natural grease in the organic peroxide acid, the toxicity is very small, Plasticizer the outstanding advantage is non-toxic, heat-resistant and light stable performance.

Plasticizer plays an indispensable role in high quality plastic products. Its variety structure is constantly adjusting and changing, the development speed of new technology is speeding up, the newer variety is more and more, the detection means are more advanced, the evaluation method is more reasonable, and the plasticizer is improving in the cycle of "development-application-toxicology test-risk assessment-redevelopment". Therefore, the correct use of plasticizers is the industry can be healthy development of the key. To do this, plasticizer enterprises should work the structural adjustment. Abroad is being vigorously promoted as non-toxic or environmentally friendly and biodegradable plasticizers.

Plasticizer is the largest additive in the quantity, output value and consumption of plastic additive. By 2012, the global plasticizer total capacity of about 7.5 million tons/year, the global total value of plasticizers 5.9 million tons/year, during which North America accounted for 22%, Plasticizer the Asia-Pacific region accounted for 38%, Europe accounted for 25%, other regions accounted for 15%. PVC is the largest user of plasticizers, Plasticizer accounting for 95% of the total amount of plasticizers in the world, and slightly above 90% in North America. The amount of plasticizer used in Polyolefin, styrene, Engineering Plastics, polyethylene acetal and cellulose is very small. In the plasticizer market, phthalic acid ester occupies the primary position of 69%, the following is the fat race accounted for 8%, epoxy category accounted for 7%, benzene tri-acid esters accounted for 4%, the other accounted for 2%.

Since plasticizers are closely related to very sophisticated soft PVC shopping malls, they have been slow to maintain steady growth, and are expected to increase at an average annual rate of 2.5%, reaching 6.1 million tonnes in 2009.

The trend of plasticizer production to large-scale, continuous, Plasticizer computerized control, a single set of production capacity has now reached 100,000 tons/year. A variety of series production with the ability to adapt to the market can be strong, production flexibility of the characteristics of a large number of different plastic processing products to the special function of the type of plasticizer needs. Plasticizer Because of the good performance of DOP, production value and consumption still occupy the leading position of phthalate esters, secondly, DINP (phthalic acid diisocyanate), DIDP (phthalic acid phthalate), and other amylose esters are also rapidly developing, which is expected to become an important type of phthalic acid esters. In addition to phthalic acid ester plasticizers, cold-resistant excellent fatty acid esters, non-toxic and stable epoxy ester, Plasticizer high temperature resistant benzene tri-acid ester, not moving polyester, good flame retardant phosphate ester in the distribution of plasticizers are accounted for a certain share, constitute a reasonable layout of the plasticizer production system.
