Valtris Specialty Chemicals’ Plasticizer Receives USDA Biobased CertificationValtris Specialty Chemicals has received the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Certified Bio-based Product label for Santicizer® Platinum G-2000.

Santicizer® Platinum G-2000 will display the USDA Certified Bio-based Product label which indicates the portion of a product that comes from a renewable source. Third-party verification for a product's bio-based content is administered through the USDA BioPreferred Program. One of the goals of the BioPreferred Program is to increase the development, purchase and use of bio-based products.

85% Certified Bio-based Content

Santicizer® Platinum G-2000 is an epoxy soyate ester with 85 percent certified bio-based content. Santicizer® Platinum G-2000 is a general-purpose plasticizer with performance comparable to other alternatives to ortho-phthalates general purpose plasticizers. It offers good processing performance, low-temperature properties and heat stability.

It can be used in paints and coatings, rubbers, epoxy resins as well as many other polymers. Formulators can combine Santicizer® Platinum G-2000 with one of Valtris’ Santicizer alternatives to ortho-phthalates plasticizers, to create optimized solutions for their specific processing needs.

Santicizer® Platinum G-2000 is cost-comparative, readily available, and performs as well as or better than its petroleum-based counterparts.

Displaying the USDA BioPreferred label for Santicizer® Platinum G-2000 assures customers they are formulating with a certified 85 percent bio-based plasticizer”, explained Dr. Mark Holt, business director, polymer modifiers.
