Emery Oleochemicals Announces New High-Performance Plasticizer, EDENOL® DOZ

Response to market demand for more readily available azelaic acid-derived plasticizers specifically designed for PVC and synthetic rubber applications

Emery Oleochemicals, a global specialty chemical manufacturer and supplier, is pleased to announce the availability of its new low temperature plasticizer. EDENOL® DOZ was developed in response to market demand for more readily available azelaic acid-derived plasticizers specifically designed for PVC and synthetic rubber applications.

Emery Oleochemicals is the pioneer in the commercial development of azelaic acid over 60 years ago. Emery’s integrated manufacturing processes and readily-available feedstock of azelaic acid through its proprietary ozonolysis process ensures a secure supply of EDENOL® DOZ.

“As it became more challenging for companies to acquire sebacic acid-based plasticizers due to increasing costs along with the uncertainty and lack of stable supply of dioctyl sebacate (DOS), it was apparent that Emery’s azelaic acid-derived plasticizers were a natural alternative. Our EDENOL® DOZ product offers similar product properties to DOS, which makes it the closest, most secure and suitable alternative to replace DOS,” said Dr. Harald Klein, Global Director of Emery’s Green Polymer Additives business.

In most applications, EDENO DOZ can replace plasticizers that are based on DOS. Vinyl films, sheeting and coated fabrics made with EDENOL® DOZ plasticizer show exceptional softness and excellent surface properties. The broad resin applications of EDENOL® DOZ include PVC, NBR, NBR/PVC, CR, CM and CSM. EDENOL® DOZ also complies with indirect food contact directives (FDA).
