Jayflex™ trimellitate plasticizers are used in automotive interiors, as well as wire and cable applications, that require resistance to very high temperatures, migration and extraction resistance over long durations.
They have extremely low volatility and are typically used in high-specification electrical cable insulation and sheathing (meeting Underwriters Laboratories standards), usually in blends with the high molecular-weight phthalates such as Jayflex™ DTDP plasticizers.
Jayflex linear trimellitate plasticizer extends the performance to applications that require lower temperature flexibility or greater UV stability such as Class C automotive cables and wind turbine tray cables, etc.

Case study: High-performance plasticizer meets demanding flexible PVC requirements
Read how Jayflex L9TM plasticizer, a linear trimelliate, exhibits excellent mechanical properties with PVC, but also provides permanency at both high and low temperatures while combining extraction and migration resistance with low fogging, and ease of processability
Fact sheet: New solutions for flexible PVC products used under extreme conditions
ExxonMobil has expanded its portfolio of high molecular weight plasticizers with the introduction of Jayflex™ L9TM, a trinonyl trimellitate based on linear and branched C9 alcohol. It shows excellent attributes that can meet the needs of extreme flexible PVC performance.
