Molecule Structure Image



Dioctyl Terephthalate is a clear colorless liquid that has fine electric property, low volatility, higher plasticizing efficiency than DOP, a suitable plasticizer for polyvinyl chloride resins. It can be used in products asking for high insulating properties, extracting proof, heating-resistance, cold-resistance, and good softness.It is also used as softener for nitrile-butadiene & chloroprene rubber.
