Jayflex™ DIDP plasticizers

Jayflex DIDP plasticizer is one of the largest-volume general-purpose high-molecular-weight plasticizers for the wire and cable industry. 

It is the plasticizer of choice for flexible PVC products that require resistance to degradation due to high temperatures (such as wire and cable) or call for low fogging (automotive interior trim). Flexible PVC products that demand high performance and good outdoor weathering (such as roofing membranes and tarpaulins) also benefit from its use.

Jayflex DIDP plasticizer is an excellent substitute for Di (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DOP) in most flexible PVC applications.

Advantages of Jayflex DIDP plasticizer

  • Higher permanency for better resistance to aging, increasing product life
  • Lower density and efficiency for volume advantages compared to DOP
  • Low volatility for reduced process emissions and improved working conditions
  • Increased PVC compound electrical resistivity for better insulation properties
  • Low fogging for reduced car interior emissions
  • Sustained flexibility in cold conditions
  • Better lubrication than DOP for lower energy consumption with higher extrusion outputs
  • REACH readiness

Jayflex DIDP plasticizer can also be of benefit when used with other non-PVC polymers such as polyurethanes or polyacrylates used in coatings, sealants and mastic applications.

DIDP is safe for use: not carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic for reproduction category 1 or 2. It does not fulfill the criteria of a substance having endocrine-disrupting properties. For more safety information, visit www.making-it-safe.com.
