Phosphate esters

The principal advantage of phosphate esters is their improved fire retardancy which is especially needed in demanding applications to improve the behaviour of flexible PVC. Triaryl phosphates (e.g. Triphenyl Phosphate and alkyl diaryl phosphates are the two main categories of this kind of plasticisers (US: plasticizers). Phosphate esters can help produce low smoke and low flammable flexible PVC.
