MOSCOW (MRC) -- Evonik is launching another latest-generation innovative plasticizer, a year after the last product launch, said the company.
The new specialty product belongs to the trimellitate group and is characterized by a combination of much sought-after properties: high temperature resistance, low volatility, and low migration behavior.
ELATUR TM makes a significant contribution to the durability, safety and reliability of the products made from it. These include, for example, high-temperature cables, dashboards, car seats and steering wheel trim in vehicle interiors.
The new myFLEXINO customer portal provides, among other things, all relevant technical documents, supplementary information, as well as videos on the new specialty plasticizer. Samples can also be requested via the interactive online platform.
ELATUR TM is delivered to the customer in tank trucks and ISO containers. For the market launch, smaller packaging units are also available on request.
The most recent product launched by Evonik was the plasticizer ELATUR® DINCD, at the beginning of 2022. The product portfolio also includes the products VESTINOL® 9, ELATUR® CH and ELATUR DPT.
We remind, Evonik is doubling its global capacity for VESTAMID E, polyether block amide (PEBA), with a twofold approach including a major expansion of its production plant at the Multi-User-Site (MUSC) in Shanghai and an optimization project at its production facility in Marl, Germany, said the company. Construction at the Shanghai site starts in Fall 2023 and will increase the company’s ability for the polymerization of PEBA, a key step in producing the raw material, which is highly demanded by the global, athletic footwear market.
