Tailor made citrate plasticisers: CITROFOL® Systems

Jungbunzlauer is the leading producer of citric acid worldwide. Using this product as the primary feedstock we manufacture our citrate esters, under the CITROFOL© brand. There are sound reasons why CITROFOL© esters are gaining increased interest as safe and effective plasticisers for the plastics industry.

CITROFOL© products are compatible with a broad range of polymer types that include: PVC, PU, acrylics and also biopolymers such as cellulosics, PLA and PHA. In most cases, CITROFOL© esters will replace traditional plasticisers as a drop-in safe alternate. With their low toxicity and compliance with stringent regulatory requirements, our esters may be used in medical devices, food packaging and pharmaceutical coatings. Moreover, industrial applications also benefit when using CITROFOL© products resulting in low volatility and low migration according to the customer needs.

There is a growing interest in using products based on renewable resources, which meet sustainability goals while performing as well as their crude oil based alternatives. Because Jungbunzlauer produces a variety of CITROFOL© esters we are able to offer custom blends that are tailor made to fit virtually all customer desires. If you would like to have greater control of volatility, migration, gelation, viscosity and curing, then you need to investigate the new CITROFOL© C and D offerings from Jungbunzlauer.

The world is ever changing and along with it so are the expectations of educated consumers who will increasingly demand safe and effective alternates to traditional chemistries. The safe bet is to consider CITROFOL© C and D Systems that are well positioned to replace standard plasticisers such as phthalates and adipates as a drop-in answer to your problems.

Jungbunzlauer is again attending K, the leading trade fair for plastics and rubber. We are pleased to welcome you from 16 - 23 October in Düsseldorf at booth B02 in hall 5 for more information about our CITROFOL® Systems!
