Product Name: PARAPLEX® G-54

POLYESTER ADIPATE
Description:
PARAPLEX G-54 is intermediate molecular weight polyester developed specifically as a permanent plasticizer in PVC with good high humidity at elevated temperatures. PARAPLEX G-54 is well suited for PVC compounds in contact with lacquer, baked enamels, alkyd-type finishes, modified and unmodified polystyrene and rubber or rubber-based compounds.

PARAPLEX G-54 has excellent resistance to migration in rubber-based adhesives and is particularly useful for PVC electrical and surgical tape applications. PARAPLEX G-54 provides volume resistivity and dielectric strength as well as resistance to copper corrosion. The outstanding durability and non-fogging characteristics make PARAPLEX G-54 ideal for use in automotive and truck interior formulations.
