Since the mid 2000’s the Cereplas range of esters have been developed and are now exclusively non ortho-phthalate specialty esters for use in the plastics and rubber industries. Part of the range is also used within hydraulic and metal working fluids.
CEREPLAS™ Adipates are used to bring enhanced low-temperature flexibility, low process viscosities, improve surface feel and texture and reduce surface resistivity. Food contact applications are a principal use (e.g. CEREPLAS DOA™ is used in food cling wraps), but are also used in floorings. The higher molecular weight adipates such as CEREPLAS™ DTDA are widely used in biodegradable hydraulic oils.
Our range of adipates include DOA, DIDA and DTDA.
CEREPLAS™ Trimellitates are high quality specialty plasticisers with low volatility, resistance to high temperature, high tensile strength, good electrical properties and processing ability. Whilst extensively used in high-temperature PVC cable insulation, their fogging performance makes them a natural choice in the automotive industry. They are also used in medical applications such as tubing.
Our range of trimellitates include OTM, L8TM and L810TM.
CEREPLAS™ Sebacates are specialty plasticisers serving niche markets, for example as underground cable sheathing in arctic environments, and in automotive sealants.
Our range of sebacates include DOS and DIDS.
CEREPLAS™ 100XS is a terephthalate ester, and an excellent general-purpose plasticiser with good heat stability and an alternative to the most common ortho-phthalate esters such as DOP and DINP.
