Phthalate Replacements

Hallstar’s innovative Plasthall® PR-Series of plasticizers are on the leading edge of phthalate replacement technology. With environmental and toxicity concerns becoming more critical, the desire to remove phthalates from polymer compounds around the globe is rapidly increasing, especially with DOP, BBP and DBP now banned by the European Union. The natural progression for most compounders was to Di-isononyl phthalate (DINP) and Di-isodecyl phthalate (DIDP).   Phthalate esters as a whole are now falling out of favor, especially when used in children’s toys, medical goods and food contact products.

The PR-Series is a full line of commercially available phthalate alternatives/replacements, for use in all types of polymer applications, especially PVC and synthetic elastomers. These products meet or exceed the performance and economic demands of the marketplace without the environmental concerns. Hallstar has phthalate replacements ranging from typical synthetically based products to those with 100 percent renewable raw material streams and biodegradability. We offer not only a phthalate alternative, but also products that will improve physical properties while eliminating any toxicity concerns.

Plasthall®

Ester plasticizers are typically monomerics, but those designated as Plasthall P-Series are polymerics. Hallstar has a broad product portfolio with a wide range of functionality in both elastomers and PVC. A subset of this brand is our Plasthall PR-Series which represents the group of products designed as Phthalate Replacements.
