Product Details: Trioctyl phosphate
Trioctyl phosphate is an organic chemical compound from the group of phosphoric acid esters (triakyl phosphates). T 2256 (OTTO) Trioctyl phosphate Cas no 78-42-2 – used as an alkylation agent for nitrogen heterocyclic compounds and as a catalyst to produce phenolic and urea resins.
Trioctyl phosphate finds application as a fire-retardant, plasticizer for polyvinyl chloride and cellulose nitrate. It is used as a stimulant for the chemical warfare nerve agent VX. Further, it used as an alkylation agent for nitrogen heterocyclic compounds and as a catalyst to produce phenolic and urea resins. In addition to this, it is used as an antifoaming agent and a co-solvent in hydrogen peroxide production.
Trioctyl Phosphate (TOF) is a plasticizer compatible with many types of polymers such as PVC, PUR, NBR, and SBR. TOF shows very good resistance to low temperatures and has excellent weathering properties. TOF can also be used as a carrier for pigments.
