What is Tributyl Citrate?

Tributyl Citrate (TBC) is an organic acid ester compound with the chemical name 1,2,3-propanetricarboxylic acid, 2-hydroxy-, tributyl ester. It is a tributyl ester formed by the reaction of citric acid and butanol. Tributyl Citrate is usually a colorless to light yellow liquid with good solubility and stability.

Tributyl Citrate is widely used as a plasticizer, lubricant and plasticizer, especially in polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and other plastic products. It can improve the softness, ductility and cold resistance of plastics, while also improving the heat resistance and transparency of plastic products. In addition, Tributyl Citrate is also commonly used in the fields of pharmaceuticals, food packaging, cosmetics, coatings and inks, as a component of materials that can come into contact with food and skin.

Tributyl Citrate Uses

Plastic industry: Tributyl Citrate is a commonly used plastic plasticizer, especially widely used in polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and other plastic products. It can increase the softness, ductility and cold resistance of plastics, and improve the processing performance and mechanical properties of plastics.

Food packaging: Since Tributyl Citrate is non-toxic and odorless to food, it is often used in the production of food packaging materials, such as plastic films, plastic containers, etc. It can improve the softness and tear resistance of food packaging materials without causing contamination to food.

Pharmaceuticals: Tributyl Citrate is also used as an ingredient in pharmaceuticals, particularly in drug coatings, capsules, softgels and drug delivery systems. It can serve as a solvent and plasticizer for drugs, helping to adjust the drug’s release rate and absorption properties.

Cosmetics: In cosmetics, Tributyl Citrate is commonly used as a plasticizer and lubricant in lotions, cream cosmetics, lipsticks, etc. It improves the texture and spreadability of cosmetics, making them easier to apply and absorb.

Coatings and Inks: Tributyl Citrate also has certain applications in coatings and inks as a solvent and plasticizer. It can improve the lubricity and fluidity of coatings and inks, making the coating more uniform and smooth, and can reduce the viscosity of the product.

Tributyl Citrate Features

Plasticization: TBC is a commonly used plastic plasticizer that can increase the softness and ductility of polymers. It interacts with polymer molecules and reduces the mutual attraction between polymer molecules, making the plastic easier to process and with good plasticity.

Low temperature performance: TBC can improve the cold resistance of plastics, allowing the plastics to remain soft and elastic in low temperature environments and not prone to becoming brittle. This makes TBC widely used in plastic products that need to be used in low temperature environments.

Solubility: TBC has good solubility and is miscible with a variety of solvents, which makes it easy to mix and disperse during plastic processing, thereby improving the efficiency and uniformity of plastic processing.

Stability: TBC has high thermal stability and chemical stability, and is not easily affected by external environmental factors such as high temperature, oxygen, light and moisture. This enables TBC to maintain long-term stable performance and service life in plastic products.

Non-toxic: TBC is non-toxic and harmless to the human body and the environment, and meets food safety and environmental protection requirements. Therefore, it is often used as food packaging materials, pharmaceutical ingredients, cosmetic ingredients and other products that need to come into contact with the human body and food.

Degradability: TBC has certain biodegradability and can gradually degrade in the natural environment and eventually be converted into harmless substances without causing long-term pollution to the environment.
