Inks & Coatings

Plasticizers are plastic additives which work by embedding themselves between the chains of polymers, spacing them apart, and thus significantly lowering the glass transition temperature for the plastic making it softer.

ProFlex 9S – Reactive Plasticizer

Phthalate Free PlasticizerProFlex 9S is a basic starting material in the preparation of high pressure melamine formaldehyde based laminates. ProFlex 9S imparts improved impact resistance, reduced shrinkage and wrap of the hardened laminate.

ProFlex 9S can also be used in low pressure melamine formaldehyde laminates, urea formaldehyde resins, and as reactive plasticizer in epoxy, polyurethane, and melamine based resins. In addition, systems reacted with ProFlex 9S show improved resistance to oils, solvents, and moisture.

ProFlex 9S has good UV and thermal stability. In coatings it imparts fungicidal activity.


ProFlex 9S is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration according to CFR 21, section:
