Morflex™ Plasticizers for Wire & Cable
Our Morflex Plasticizers offer a broad temperature range and enhanced flexibility within a variety of end applications.
- Morflex™ 560 Plasticizer: Morflex 560 (Trihexyl Trimellitate) for PVC and its copolymers. Vinyl resins plasticized with this trimellitate ester find application in a variety of markets including automotive and furniture upholstery, wire coatings, and gasket materials. It is used as a plasticizer for PVC/Teflon® high-temperature wire coatings.
- Morflex™ 1129 Plasticizer: Morflex 1129 (Dimethyl Isophthalate) helps enhance strength and improves clarity. is a specially purified form of dimethyl Isophthalate, an intermediate in the synthesis of polyesters. In order to obtain the structural strength needed in fibers and films, the polyester must be of high molecular weight and the most efficient route to these high molecular weights is through trans-esterification and copolymerization of Morflex 1129 and terephthalate ester with ethylene glycol. It is used in staple polyester and polyester bottle resins. It works by retarding crystallization for better clarity and strength
2-Vinylpyridine is the key intermediate in the production of the API, betahistine, an anti-vertigo medicine.
2-Vinylpyridine is a reactive monomer and once polymerized, the nitrogen is less exposed/accessible than its counterpart, 4-Vinylpyridine. It can be copolymerized with many other monomers, in particular cationic monomers, such as acrylamide, acrylates, and also with other vinyl-based monomers (e.g. styrene). The benefit of the addition of a 6-membered heterocyclic moiety is the increased Van der Waals forces which impart better electrostatic forces to the finished polymer, improving adhesion.
