Roflex 50 plasticizer
About product

The Roflex 50 plasticizer is an additive for plastics that combines the function of plasticizers and flame retardants. The use of this additive ensures the plasticization of the material while increasing the level of non-flammability. It is used primarily in the processing of poly(vinyl chloride). Roflex 65 plasticizer with higher dynamic viscosity is also available. Non-returnable packaging is included in the price.

Product made to order, delivery time 14 days from the date of order confirmation.

Plastics are polymers of natural or synthetic origin containing a number of additives. In the plastics industry, pure polymers are rarely used, in such cases the achievements of processing technology, such as additives for plastics, are used. Plasticizers and flame retardants are important additives to plastics. In processing processes, the plasticizer causes a huge physical and mechanical change of the polymer-plasticizer system. It changes the structure of polymer chains, which under its influence move away from each other. This has a direct impact on the reduction of the glass transition temperature, i.e. the limit parameter, which, if exceeded, causes the material to change from a glassy state to an elastic one. The influence of the plasticizer determines the quality, intended use and mechanical properties of the finished product. Plastics surround us at every step and for our safety they are modified in such a way that under the influence of an igniting factor such as a flame or an electric arc, they do not sustain the burning process. One of the highly specialized additives for plastics is Roflex 50 , which has two very important functions. First of all, it acts as a plasticizer, significantly facilitating the processing of plastics. In addition, it has flame retardant properties, thanks to which the material gains greater resistance to fire. Roflex 50 plastic additive is a phosphate ester-based plasticizer used primarily in poly(vinyl chloride) based materials. Plasticizers with flame-retardant properties are widely used in soft PVC products - including: transparent films, conveyor belts, roof coverings and membranes, wall wallpapers, floor coverings, construction foils and tarpaulins, car tarpaulins, strip curtains, artificial leather, lagging cables, projection screens, PVC plastisols for coated technical fabrics.   Plastic additive, Roflex 50 plasticizer is used in industries such as:

• construction (e.g. construction foils and tarpaulins, roof coverings and membranes)
• plastics (PVC granulates, production of synthetic rubber)
• textiles and textiles (e.g. coated technical fabrics)
• transport (e.g. car tarpaulins, car linings)
• electrical engineering (e.g. cable sleeves, projection screens)
