  • GTB is a very safe plasticizer and is therefore used in the food-packaging industry on paper and
  • GTB is used in high concentrations in polyvinyl acetate-based adhesives. GTB is mixed into the
  • mixture at below, its melting point using a high shear mixer. If GTB in heated above its melting point (71°C), this results in an irreversible tackification and plastification of the coating.
  • GTB may be used in cellophane-packing to improve heat-seal properties,
  • without affecting colour and clarity of the film.
  • GTB is an excellent plasticizer and non-formaldehyde resin substitute in nail lacquer
  • formulations. It imparts superior du-rability and aesthetic properties.
  • GTB improves adhesion and water resistance of printing ink formulations.
  • Packaging:
    20 kg bags
