Oxea GmbH introduced a stabilized TOTM (trioctyl trimellitate or tri-2-ethylhexyl trimellitate) under the brand name Oxsoft TOTM ST into its range of phthalate-free plasticizers.
The Oxsoft TOTM ST product is launched to address specific performance requirements in application areas where extreme low volatility is required, Oxea said.
Oxsoft TOTM ST is stabilized with Lowinox CA22, a high performance specialty antioxidant from Addivant's specialty antioxidant portfolio. Compared to conventional antioxidants used in the plasticizer industry, Oxea said Lowinox CA22 enables more efficient stabilization, provides superior color stability and has better compatibility with the PVC compound.
With the addition of the stabilizer, Oxsoft TOTM ST provides a more robust extraction resistance, sustains color quality throughout a longer lifecycle, and provides additional thermal stability during the manufacturing process, the company said. The suggested application areas for Oxsoft TOTM ST are cables, wires and coated fabrics manufacturing. Oxsoft TOTM ST is available in commercial quantities and shipping to customers has begun.
