Eastman™ plasticizers

Sealants and Caulk

Sealants and caulks need plasticizers to perform. However, regulatory pressures on phthalates and product formulations have forced sealant and caulk formulators to find alternatives to traditional plasticizer options. Eastman has the widest range of benzoate plasticizers in the industry, providing an optimal balance of performance and value. For example, Benzoflex™ LC-531 plasticizer was designed to pass the stringent performance requirements outlined in ASTM C-920 and ASTM C-834, as well as in nonspecification caulks. Our plasticizers promote better low-temperature properties, allow for higher filler loads, optimize adhesion to various substrates, and deliver flexibility and superior performance for sealants and caulks.
