Acetyl tributyl citrate-polyvinyl chloride

Figures using ATBC-PVC as plasticizer (or plasticiser) emit fewer phthalates. ATBC got better biodegradability and fewer biochemical effects. Source: Wikipedia: [ext link ]

These plasticisers are used in a variety of primarily vinyl materials such as vinyl resins and films, but also in some cellulose acetates. They are used to plasticise vinyl resins employed in applications such as toys, pacifiers, medical devices and packaging films. Acetyl Tributyl citrate presents several advantages because of its higher heat stability and does not discolour when processed in compounded resins compared to non acetylated citrates.
