Ingredient Feature: Acetyl Tributyl Citrate

Acetyl Tributyl Citrate (ATBC) is a natural plasticizer that blends with many plastics, resins and rubbers. It is a perfect additive in the paints, coatings and industrial chemicals industries, for companies looking to formulate with natural, environmentally-friendly additives. 

There is a growing trend in the paints and coatings industry toward biodegradable, clean-label chemicals that are effective in replacing petroleum-based chemicals. ATBC provides both a seamless all-natural replacement and also competitive mechanical features. It works well in replacing conventional and synthetic plasticizers such as phthalates. 

Acting as a replacement with many applications including in personal care, cosmetics, pharmaceutical coatings, and food-contact films, ATBC especially compliments products in paints and coatings. As a plasticizer, ATBC helps increase the flexibility, transparency and durability of plastics, seamlessly combining with and enhancing biopolymers.
