What is DEHP?
Di (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP) is a plasticizer used to make PVC soft and flexible. DEHP is the world’s most widely used PVC plasticizer and is used in virtually every category of flexible PVC.
Where is it used?
DEHP is used in a wide range of soft PVC products ranging from medical devices such as medical tubing
and blood bags, to footwear, electrical cables, packaging and flooring.
Why is it used?
Plasticizers are essential to make PVC flexible. PVC is rigid by nature but plasticizers are added to allow the tubing to become flexible and expandable, while retaining its shape. DEHP is widely used because it is low cost, processes well and has provided good end use performance.
