Products by product group
Here you find all our products catagorized by the chemical group they belong to. If you know where the product you are looking for belongs to just click on the group and find the product.
Another approach is to look for a product by application or industry where it is used. From both angles the same products are shown.
However, it is of course still posible that you may not find the exact product you are looking for, while it is still very likely that BAX offers you the solution for your search. In that case, please do not hesitate to inform us. Besides the most current products we put up here, it is very much possible that our suppliers can offer and the supply this product the same. All our product pages show, next to a brief introduction, the specifiation sheet (TDS or Sales specifications) Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) are avialable on request. )
PLASTICIZERS | DIOCTYLPHTALATE (DOP)
Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DOP) is one of the most cost effective and widely available general purpose plasticisers. It is used mainly for making PVC soft and pliable and it accounts for around 15% of all plasticiser usage in Western Europe . DEHP (CAS No [117-81-7]) is also known as di-octyl phthalate (DOP). It is the phthalate ester of the alcohol 2-ethyl hexanol, which is normally manufactured by the dimerisation of butyraldehyde, the butyraldehyde itself being synthesised from propylene. DEHP is a plasticiser which offers a good all-round performance.
DOP offers a good all-round performance and is therefore used for a great many cost-effective, general purpose products including building material such as flooring, cables, profiles and roof membranes, as well as medical products such as blood bags and dialysis equipment. DEHP possesses reasonable plasticising efficiency, fusion rate and viscosity (of great importance for plastisol applications). The content of DOP in flexible polymer materials varies but is often around 30% (w/w). Production process: All manufacturers of phthalate esters use similar processes. DOP is produced by the esterfication of phthalic anhydride with 2-ethyl-hexanol.
