Plasticisers (US: plasticizers) are colourless and odourless liquids used primarily to soften plastic. Over 85% of all plasticisers consumed in Europe are employed in durable flexible PVC applications, largely for the construction, automotive and wire & cable sectors. Some plasticisers are used in non-PVC applications such as coatings, rubber products, adhesives and sealants.
