Title: LOW VOLATILE, EPOXIDIZED PLASTICIZER COMPOSITION WITH LOW LEVELS OF ORGANIC VOLATILES
Abstract:
There is disclosed a low volatile, epoxidized plasticizer composition comprising a blend of a) one or more epoxidized fatty acid esters having at least 4% saturates; and b) one or more epoxidized bio-based oil, wherein the low volatile plasticizer is at least 80% free of organic volatiles. There is also disclosed a method of making a low volatile, epoxidized plasticizer composition as described herein, the method comprising hydrothermally treating the one or more epoxidized fatty acid esters and one or more epoxidized bio-based oil either before or after the blend is formed at conditions sufficient to remove at least 80% of trace organic volatiles while maintaining at least at least 4% saturates.
