In acrylic latex, Santicizer®160 is an excellent plasticizer for reducing the Tg of the acrylic polymers used in paints and coatings. Santicizer®160 is highly compatible with acrylics, allowing formulators to increase filler levels without sacrificing the physical performance of their paints. Santicizer®160 can improve coalescing and cold check performance of cure films.
All of our Benzyl Phthalate products provide excellent weatherability, paintability and long term anti-fungal properties in paints and coatings.
Santicizer®160 and Santicizer®141 improve flexibility and cold check performance of nitro-cellulose films. They are primarily used to plasticize flexographic inks used in food packaging applications where FDA approvals are required.
