ECHEMI | Diisooctyl adipate

Dioctyl adipate (DOA) is most often used as a PVC plasticizer. It imparts good low temperature flexibility, good heat stability, weathering properties, and good electrical properties.  It is also compatible with nitrocellulose, ethylcellulose, high-butyryl cellulose acetate butyrate, and many synthetic rubbers. DOA is also commonly used with primary plasticizers, like DOP, to create lubricant basetocks. Dioctyl adipate is also used in paints as a way to disperse pigments. For applications involving food, DOA can be used as a plasticizer in food contact polymers and rubbers making it useful in clear food packaging films or seals.
