2-octanediol properties and stability and ecological data

Mar 12, 2019

The ecological data of 2-octanediol is slightly harmful to water during use. Do not allow undiluted or large quantities of products to come into contact with groundwater, waterways or sewage systems during operation. Drain the material into the surrounding environment.

2-octanediol properties and stability

2-octanediol is an excellent cold-resistant plasticizer when it is handled. It is directly copolymerized with polyvinyl chloride, vinyl chloride-vinyl acetate, polystyrene, polyvinyl acetate, butyric acid acetate. Cellulose, nitrocellulose, ethyl cellulose, etc. have good compatibility. It has low viscosity, high boiling point, high plasticizing efficiency, small water extraction, low volatility and migration, and excellent heat resistance, light resistance, electrical insulation and viscosity stability to plastisol, and cold resistance. Better than dioctyl adipate (DOA).

3-octanediol is very suitable for use in artificial leather, film, sheet, wire and cable sheathing, plastisol, etc., which can give the product good low temperature performance. This product can also be used alone or in combination with other plasticizers as a plasticizer for synthetic rubbers such as nitrile rubber, styrene butadiene rubber and neoprene.
