Jayflex™ MB10 plasticizer

Jayflex MB10 Logo

Jayflex MB10 plasticizer is a mono ester of benzoic acid and isodecyl alcohol. It features good compatibility with thermoplastic resins, particularly polyvinyl chloride (PVC). 

Compared with many other plasticizers, Jayflex MB10 has very low density, potentially leading to greater volumes of finished product and reduced costs for formulators.

Advantages of Jayflex MB10 (a benzoate plasticizer)

  • Fast-fusing capability, improving PVC processability
  • High efficiency for excellent performance at low temperatures
  • Balanced volatility with very low viscosity
  • Reduced volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
  • Improved flexible PVC resistance to stains
  • Contribution to good foam structure and increased foaming rate

Unlike many commercial di-benzoate plasticizers, Jayflex MB10 plasticizer will not solidify at low temperatures. Adding it to a PVC formulation can improve cold-temperature flexibility and low-temperature impact.

Jayflex MB10 acts as a secondary plasticizer to reduce the plastisol viscosity without the need for more volatile hydrocarbon viscosity depressants. Jayflex MB10 has a boiling point well above 300°C (572°F), which helps reduce VOC content. This sustainability advantage, together with excellent resistance to stains, makes Jayflex MB10 an ideal choice for flooring formulators.

Jayflex MB10 plasticizer is registered under REACH regulations. It is not classified as hazardous for any property under EU Directive 67/548/EEC and the Globally Harmonized System for Classification and Labeling.
