Adipates are colourless and odourless and they are used in a number of coating, washing and cleaning applications, lubricants and greases, plant protection products, adhesive and sealants, polishes and waxes.

Di-(2-butoxyethyl)adipate, is used in polar elastomers, which provides good low temperature flexibility. Bis[2-(2-butoxyethoxy)ethyl]adipate, is used to improve cold flexibility and/or hydrocarbons extraction in both PVC and polar rubbers compounds. Examples of application are wires/cables, hoses or shoe soles. Its thermal stability in rubbers is also remarkable comparatively to other usual plasticizers.
