Plastics & Polymers Enhancing Polymer Performance

Citrate Derivatives

Citroflex® citric acid esters provide a wide range of benefits when used as plasticizers, solvents, and additives for aqueous and solvent-based polymers. In recent years, due to scrutiny of phthalates, citrates are being considered as viable alternatives due to their low toxicity and low volatility.

Citrate derivative plasticizer products help keep plastics soft and flexible, without compromising durability or user safety.  Based on special chemistries, these products have many uses in a wide range of sensitive applications and are gaining greater usage as manufacturers evaluate product composition from the perspective of health and safety.
