TCC’s ChemFlexx NP 500 is an environmentally safe, non-toxic liquid compound. It is a non-phthalate plasticizer developed to replace general- purpose phthalate plasticizers like DOP, DOTP and DINP.
TCC’s ChemFlexx NP 500 non-phthalate plasticizer was developed to replace general purpose phthalate plasticizers liked DOP, DOTP and DINP.
ChemFlexx NP 500 is used mainly for making PVC soft and pliable for applications in the automotive industry, the manufacturing of building and construction materials, cable and flooring, as well as medical devices and toys. The non-toxic liquid compound is also used in the production of vinyl upholstery, tablecloths, shower curtains, raincoats, shoes, garden hoses, swimming pool liners, polymeric coatings, cable coatings, components of paper and paperboard, defoaming agents and surface lubricants.
Additionally, ChemFlexx NP 500 is used in non-polymer applications including anti-corrosion paints, anti-fouling paints, lacquers, inks, adhesives and sealants.

TCC’s ChemFlexx NP 500 is a non-phthalate plasticizer made to replace general purpose phthalate plasticizers like DOP, DOTP and DINP.
Plasticizers have been used to make things soft and bendable for thousands of years. Water has been used to soften clay since the early evolution of man, and oils have been used for centuries to soften pitch for waterproofing boats. Those are just two examples of early plasticizing systems.
Modern plasticizers are colorless, odorless liquids that are major functional additives that determine and improve the physical properties of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). More than 90 percent of all plasticizers are employed in flexible PVC applications, largely for the construction, automotive and wire & cable industries.
Phthalates are the most commonly used plasticizers in the world. They can be found in a range of everyday items that include electrical cables, hoses, flooring, wall covering, coated textiles, luggage, sports equipment, roofing membranes, pool liners, footwear as well as life saving medical devices such as tubing and blood bags. In addition, some phthalates are used in non-PVC applications such as coatings, rubber products, adhesives and sealants.
In recent years, phthalates have been scrutinized for possible environmental and health issues. Although science does not support the concerns, phthalates have suffered from an unwarranted stigma that has had an adverse effect on the phthalate market. Consequently non-phthalate plasticizers have been developed to allay any concerns.
TCC’s ChemFlexx NP 500 is one of many new non-phthalate plasticizers that have been introduced to the marketplace. The non-phthalate plasticizer is a colorless, odorless, non-toxic, high performance liquid compound that meets the requirements to replace a range of general purpose phthalate plasticizers.
