General Information

Tributyl Citrate (TBC) is an excellent replacement for phthalates and adipates as it has a matching plasticiser performance. It is commonly used in cosmetics, food contact films, and articles of plastic, and it is a fast-fusing plasticiser for technical applications.

It has excellent compatibility with PVC, making it a well-suited and recommended plasticiser for artificial leathers, textile coatings, floorings, and many other common commercial and industrial applications.
