“The trimellitates type segment to register the fastest growth during the forecast period.”
Trimellitates are manufactured by the esterification of C7 to C10 alcohols with trimellitic anhydride (TMA). They impart various properties, such as low volatility, low migration rate, good compatibility with PVC, good outdoor weatherability, plasticizer solvency, high temperature resistance, and extraction resistance. Trimellitates are used in dashboard PVC skins, and in the insulation or sheathing of electrical cables for high temperature, owing to low volatility properties.
“The flooring & wall coverings application to be the largest consumer of non-phthalate plasticizers.”
Flooring & wall coverings is one of the largest applications of non-phthalate plasticizers used in flexible PVC. According to the American Chemistry Council, flexible PVC is the second-most commonly used plastic material and is mainly used in the flooring & wall covering application in the construction industry. The low volatility and high extraction resistance properties of non-phthalate plasticizers are driving its demand in the flooring & wall covering application.
