Dibasic Ester from DuPont

November 14, 2005

Wilmington, DE-based DuPont Textiles & Interiors (DTI) Specialty Intermediates introduced a new dibasic ester, DBE-LVP, for consumer product applications in the U.S. The DBE-LVP is tailored to meet both California's low vapor pressure/volatile organic compound criteria and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency VOC exemption for consumer and institutional products. These regulations limit the amount of volatile organic compounds in products used in maintaining and operating homes and other establishments, as well as in certain personal care products.
Delaware, New York and Pennsylvania have adopted new regulations as well, which will take effect Jan. 1, 2005, DuPont executives said.
“Formulators who use DBE-LVP will be able to continue serving their customers without worrying about this ingredient impacting total VOC content,” said Keith Watson, DBE product manager.
