Re-Plas Polymeric Plasticisers
A Food Contact and Oil Resistant Plasticiser
Polymeric plasticisers are used to achieve flexibility in PVC, rubber compounds and some other resin systems, including acrylics. They are a high performance, more permanent alternative to monomeric plasticisers and are increasingly used to meet challenging specification requirements. Townsend Chemicals provides a comprehensive range of RE-PLAS polymeric plasticisers that can be used in a variety of PVC and rubber applications.
The RE-PLAS plasticisers are saturated polyester resins used in the production of PVC compounds and rubber compounds, providing resistance to volatility, resistance to chemical extraction and migration. These polymeric plasticisers are long chain polyesters with high molecular weight which results in a stable, durable and long lasting plastic or rubber product.
The RE-PLAS range of plasticisers have been engineered to provide superior performance, with many grades suitable for food contact applications. Resistance to fuel, synthetic and natural oils are a key benefit.
Townsend RE-PLAS plasticisers have been used globally in the following products:
- Calendered film
- Oil resistant PVC boots
- Conveyor belts
- Refrigerator door gaskets
- Fabric coatings
- Film and food wrap
- Shoe compounds
- Fuel resistant tube
