  • Patent number: 9725573
    Abstract: A unique monobenzoate useful as a plasticizer in polymeric dispersions, such as plastisols and melt compounds. The monobenzoate comprises 3-phenyl propyl benzoate, a benzoate ester heretofore known as a flavoring and fragrance agent, but not previously utilized as a plasticizer in polymeric applications. Depending on the application, the advantages rendered by the use of the inventive monobenzoate include, among other things, excellent solvating properties, low viscosity, viscosity stability, and improved rheology, as well as health, safety and environmental advantages over traditional plasticizers. The monobenzoate may be used alone or in combination with a variety of plasticizers, including but not limited to phthalates, terephthalates, dibenzoates, other monobenzoates, or 1,2-cyclohexane dicarboxylate esters, and mixtures thereof.

  • Patent number: 8669311
    Abstract: C7-C12 secondary alcohol esters of cyclohexanecarboxylic acids are especially useful as plasticizers for PVC and other plasticizable polymers. In embodiments, these plasticizers are useful in plastisol formulations to help improved processability of flexible PVC material. In other embodiments these same plasticizers can be used in blends with other plasticizers to improve processability. In preferred embodiments these same plasticizers can be used to prepare flexible PVC compounds with enhanced low temperature flexibility, low toxicity, and improved resistance to outdoor aging.
