Product Focus: Acetyl Tributyl Citrate

Mainly used as a nontoxic plasticizer in PVC, cellulose resin and synthetic rubber, Acetyl Tributyl Citrate (ATBC) is also valued for its biodegradability in nail polishes and other cosmetics. ATBC provides many improvements over di-butyl phthalate in cellulose nitrate films due to its lower volatility, better resistance to yellowing and better adhesion to metals. It can widely be found in children’s toys, especially vinyl toys, medical products and food contact applications. Acetyl Tributyl Citrate can also be used as a plasticizer in bio-plastics such as poly lactic acid, cellulose acetate and poly hydroxyalkanoic acid.
