Family of the epoxidized. Epoxidized Soybean Oil, Epoxidized Linseed Oil and Epoxiesters (PL-401), secondary plasticizers, of vegetable origin, are appreciate as inhibitors of thermal degradation due to light and heat that causes acid hydrolysis generated in situ. They can also be called supplementary plasticizers.
Family of Polyesters, Adilens called polymeric or permanent plasticizers due to their high resistance to volatility, extraction and migration in the formulations in which they are incorporated.
Family of lubricants: Monoesters such as Permavis -T, which excel for its effectiveness as lubricant and general fluidizer for PVC and synthetic rubber processes, or the Viscostatic E-20, which finds application as an internal lubricant for general use in PVC. Both, likewise, are suitable for the lubricant sector as friction modifiers or in hydraulic fluids with very good biodegradable properties.
Also, the glycerin esters, such as the Glycerin Trioleate (TOG), which is a liquid lubricant of mostly internal action without almost losses throughout the process in rigid and flexible PVC with antistatic and anti fogging properties. It has application, likewise, like modifier of anticorrosive friction between metallic surfaces, in systems of transmission or mechanics in the sector of lubricants.
The Mono oleate of Glycerin (Meister L-2), also with anti-static and anti-fogging properties, which can be used in rigid and flexible PVC processes, and, in general, in those plastic surfaces to which one is wanted to provide an appearance of crystal clear. It can also be applied in the lubricant sector as a friction modifier on metal surfaces due to its anti-corrosive properties.
The research would be to develop the “optimal mix of plasticizers” for each application in particular, to control the different variables that interest us: volatility, migration, extraction, flexibility at different temperatures, viscosity, resistance to moisture or electrical properties, among others
