KFlex Plasticisers for use in a wide range of applications.
KFLEX plasticizers, coalescents, and modifiers are optimized for excellent value, performance, compatibility, and economy in a wide range of applications. They are non-phthalate, low-VOC, and have positive attributes from a product health, safety, and environmental perspective compared to many other options.
In addition to the environmental attributes these products offer, they can also enhance key performance characteristics of the end-product, meeting or exceeding the performance of other standard plasticizers and coalescents in a wide range of applications, including adhesives, caulks, sealants, coatings, and vinyl/plastisols. Many products in the line also have certain FDA clearances for use in indirect food-contact applications.
K-FLEX® DP – Dipropylene glycol dibenzoate is one of the most versatile polar, high solvating plasticizers. It is compatible with a wide range of polar polymers and rubbers, including TPU. It is an excellent choice for high solvating plasticizer applications.
K-FLEX® 500 – A classic dibenzoate blend. As a polar plasticizer, it is a high solvator for PVC and compatible with polar polymers such as polyvinyl acetate. It is primarily used in adhesive applications.
K-FLEX® 850S – A low VOC blend of dibenzoates optimized for use in waterborne latex applications. Widely used in the industry because of the excellent combination of efficiency, economy and performance benefits it provides to the formulator. In Europe K-FLEX® 850S is label-free.
There are other specialized grades available for those requiring lower VOCs or modified storage / handling characteristics.
