Oxea GmbH has expanded its phthalate-free plasticizer portfolio with the introduction of Oxsoft L9TM, a linear trinonyltrimellitate.
Oxsoft L9TM is ideally suited for special applications where products must meet the most rigid demands, Oxea said, such as the manufacture of resilient and durable high temperature automotive cables that comply with the most severe requirements in this industry. Oxsoft L9TM directly replaces conventional C8/C10 trimellitates and is available in industrial quantities.
Oxsoft L9TM shows to high temperatures, cold temperature flexibility, Oxea said, and great resistance to migration while having good plasticizing efficiency and processability. Other application areas include non-fogging automotive interior; special sheets; profiles and gaskets; and base stock for lubricating oils.
