Evonik expand plasticizer range

Evonik plans to launch new plasticizer products based on isononanol (INA) raw material in 2022.

The company’s plasticizers are used in poly vinyl chloride (PVC) products such as cables, flooring and roofing membranes. The new products Vestinol 9 and Elatur CH will be manufactured at the group's largest site in Marl, Germany.

According to Evonik, the market for innovative plasticizers is growing rapidly. “In addition to a balanced product portfolio, supply security is particularly relevant for our customers,” said Roland Pietz, head of plasticizers. “Our response to this is to take measures to further secure the availability of plasticizers and the raw materials used to produce them.”
