Eastman Chemical Co. has extended its non-phthalate plasticizer offerings with Effusion, an efficient, fast-fusing product that can boost production line speeds, lower processing temperatures and reduce production costs.

Processors can combine Effusion with other plasticizers to customize formulas for their specific needs. Combined with general purpose plasticizers, Effusion improves viscosity, stability and efficiency at lower hardness. It is especially suited to resilient vinyl sheet, vinyl tile and vinyl composite tiles, according to the Kingsport, Tenn., company.
