reFlex 100, a fast-acting bio-based plasticizer produced from rapidly renewable plant-based feedstocks, is an alternative to conventional plasticizers such as BBP, DBP, and benzoates. reFlex 100 can be blended into both traditional phthalate and new nonphthalate systems, providing a formulating tool that helps reduce costs by improving productivity, eliminating defects, and reducing consumption. To improve productivity, reFlex 100 offers faster setup times and reduced viscosity versus traditional plasticizers. It helps eliminate defects through improved air release and thermal stability. Because it is more efficient, reFlex 100 also reduces the amount of plasticizer needed during processing. It acts inherently as a thermal stabilizer as well, which may enable processors to eliminate the need for stabilizers in their formulas.
