Tributyl Phosphate (TBP) is a specialty plasticizer useful in a variety of applications such as coatings, lacquers, ink, as well as plastic and vinyl resins. One of the primary advantages of Tributyl phosphate and other similar Phosphate Ester plasticizers in comparison with Phthalates is that the Phosphate esters have improved fire retardancy properties. While PVC typically has good fire performance due to its high halogen content, addition of certain plasticizers may impair this property, and use of Phosphate Ester plasticizers may help to mitigate this problem.
Tributyl Phosphate is a regular stock item for ChemCeed. Please inquire for details.
