Diisobutyl Phthalate (DIBP) is a colorless oily liquid with a slight ester odor. It is a plasticizer that is used in nitrocellulose, alkyd resin paints, inks, coatings, lacquers, and adhesives. Due to lower production costs, DIBP is used as an alternative to DBP (Dibutyl Phthalate).
ArChem provides Diisobutyl Phthalate and other plasticizers such as Acetyl triethyl citrate (ATEC), Dioctyl Adipate (DOA), and Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP) for various industrial applications. Additionally, ArChem provides customers with other chemical products including Nitrocellulose, Nitrocellulose solution, organic solvents, etc. for further information please contact our technical sales team in ArChem.
ArChem Diisobutyl Phthalate (DIBP) (also known as Isobutyl Phthalate and Palatinol IC) is an odorless plasticizer with the molecular formula C16H22O4. It is a phthalate ester that is the diester obtained by the formal condensation of the carboxy groups of phthalic acid with two molecules of isobutanol.
ArChem Diisobutyl Phthalate (DIBP) is a plasticizer that is used with different polymers such as polyacrylate, poly acetate dispersions, cellulose acetate, nitrocellulose, polyurethane, and polyvinyl butyrate. The chemical and physical properties of Diisobutyl Phthalate (DIBP) are listed below:
