DOP is a universal plasticizer
, which is widely used in polyethylene plastics at present, and its dosage accounts for nearly more than 80% of the total plasticizer usage. The general purpose plasticizer
DOP is dioctyl phthalate, which is mainly used in the processing of polyvinyl chloride. The plasticized PVC of DOP can be used in the manufacturing of artificial leather, agricultural film, packaging materials, electric wires and cables, etc. It is widely used in plastics, rubber, paint, emulsifiers and other industries. Also can be used for chemical fiber resin, acetic acid resin, ABS resin and rubber and other high polymer processing, can also be used for paint, dye, dispersant.
But the toxicity of plasticizerDOP has become a focus of concern. Even small doses of plasticizer can cause shortness of breath and increased heart rate. At present, plasticizer for environmental protection has gradually become the recommended plasticizer for manufacturers. In particular, European and American countries and other countries have strictly controlled the use of plasticizerDOP. Some PVC pipes exported from China need to go through relevant quality testing to ensure that they meet the specified environmental protection standards. New environmentally friendly plasticizers
such as dinch in basf, mesamoll in Lansing, and LGplasticizer in South Korea are increasingly being recommended as alternatives to toxic plasticizers.
