A novel, low volatility, non-phthalate plasticizer/coalescent blend for use in paints and other polymeric coatings comprises a triblend of diethylene glycol dibenzoate, dipropylene glycol dibenzoate, and 1,2-propylene glycol dibenzoate. The triblend when used in a paint or other coatings achieves a low VOC paint or coating having stable viscosity after three freeze/thaw cycles and equivalent or superior wet edge/open time ratings, gloss ratings, scrub resistance and block resistance when compared to traditional coalescents, including without limitation high VOC coalescents, low VOC non-dibenzoate coalescents and other dibenzoate blends. The triblend may be used as a substitute or alternative coalescent in latex and acrylic emulsion coatings, among others, to achieve a lower VOC content without sacrificing performance properties.

Plasticizer blends comprise a triblend of diethylene glycol dibenzoate, dipropylene glycol dibenzoate, and 1,2-propylene glycol dibenzoate, in specified ratios, useful in combination with a multitude of thermoplastic polymers, thermosetting polymers, and elastomeric polymers and numerous applications, including but not limited to plastisols, adhesives, sealants, caulks, architectural coatings, industrial coatings, OEM coatings, inks, overprint varnishes, polishes, and the like. The advantages rendered by the use of the triblend depend on the type of polymer and application in which it is utilized and include among other advantages higher solvating power and lower processing time, low VOCs, reduced plasticizer freeze point, improved gelation and fusion characteristics, higher tensile strength, superior stain and extraction resistance, and improved rheology over traditional diblends of diethylene glycol dibenzoate and dipropylene glycol dibenzoate.

Polyester plasticizer compositions for adhesives, caulk, sealants, vinyl and other polymeric compositions comprising low molecular weight oligomeric dibenzoates prepared by end-capping a polyester plasticizer, having alternating units of glycols or diols and dibasic acids, with benzoic acid. Methods for preparing oligomeric dibenzoates include steps to reduce or eliminate residual hydroxyl content and improve plasticizer performance by adding acetic anhydride are also disclosed. Propylene glycol adipate and propylene glycol succinate polyesters with benzoic acid end-caps are particularly useful, as are hybrid benzoate/acetate end-capped polyesters formed in the process with acetic anhydride. Caulks, adhesives, sealants, and vinyl compositions comprising the oligomeric end-capped polyesters of the invention are also contemplated.

A unique monobenzoate useful as a plasticizer in polymeric dispersions, such as adhesives, comprising 3-phenyl propyl benzoate, a monobenzoate ester used as a flavor and fragrance additive, but not heretofore utilized as a plasticizer for polymeric dispersions, such as adhesives, caulks and sealants. The inventive monobenzoate provides a suitable non-phthalate, lower VOC alternative plasticizer that is compatible with a wide variety of polymers. Advantages rendered by the use of the inventive monobenzoate include, among other things, excellent viscosity response, low viscosity, viscosity stability, improved rheology, good film formation and comparable or better adhesion, peel strength, set time, open time, chalk point and MFFT, compared with that achieved by traditional plasticizers. The inventive monobenzoate also has an excellent health, safety and environmental profile and provides a viable alternative for adhesives used in food contact applications, such as packaging, where migratory concerns are an issue.

A unique monobenzoate useful as a plasticizer in polymeric dispersions, such as plastisols and melt compounds. The monobenzoate comprises 3-phenyl propyl benzoate, a benzoate ester heretofore known as a flavoring and fragrance agent, but not previously utilized as a plasticizer in polymeric applications. Depending on the application, the advantages rendered by the use of the inventive monobenzoate include, among other things, excellent solvating properties, low viscosity, viscosity stability, and improved rheology, as well as health, safety and environmental advantages over traditional plasticizers. The monobenzoate may be used alone or in combination with a variety of plasticizers, including but not limited to phthalates, terephthalates, dibenzoates, other monobenzoates, or 1,2-cyclohexane dicarboxylate esters, and mixtures thereof.

A unique monobenzoate useful as a plasticizer or coalescent for polymeric dispersions, including without limitation architectural and other coatings, paints, OEM coatings, special purpose coatings, overprint varnishes, inks, nail polish, floor polishes and the like. The monobenzoate comprises 3-phenyl propyl benzoate, a benzoate ester previously known as a flavoring and fragrance agent, but not previously utilized as a plasticizer or coalescent in polymeric applications. The inventive monobenzoate provides a suitable non-phthalate, lower VOC content alternative plasticizer or coalescent that is compatible with a wide variety of polymers. Depending on the application, the advantages rendered by the use of the inventive monobenzoate include, among other things, excellent solvating properties, viscosity stability, improved rheology, good film formation and comparable or better gloss, hardness, adhesion, water and alkali resistance, scrub and rub resistance, block resistance, color density, dry to touch time, open time, and MFFT, compared with that achieved by traditional plasticizers or coalescents.

A novel plasticizer blend(s) useful for plastisol compositions, including organisols, having good solvating properties, good viscosity profiles and compatibility with other plasticizers and solvents traditionally used in plastisols, comprising benzoate ester plasticizer(s) and a compatibilizing plasticizer component. Methods for preparing a plastisol having low viscosity and good rheology characteristics and for rendering a benzoate ester plasticizer, or blends thereof, compatible with organic solvents traditionally used in plastisols, by incorporating the novel plasticizer blend(s), which do not require adjusting the solubility parameters of the solvents to accommodate the plasticizer, are disclosed.
