ESBO/ESO - Epoxidized soybean oil...

... plasticizer – Co-stabilizer for Polyvinyl Chloride ...

Epoxidized soybean oil, ESBO or ESO, is a plasticizer which can be used in PVC products (polyvinyl chloride films, gaskets, Masterbatches, compounds, etc...), such as all kinds of food package materials, medical products, different kinds of films, sheet materials, tubing, gaskets, refrigerator sealing strips, artificial leather, plastic wallpaper, electrical wires and cables, other plastic products and for food contact applications. Epoxidized soybean oil (ESO/ESBO) can also be used as special printing ink and liquid composite stabilizer.

Epoxidised soyabean oil, ESBO, is produced starting from soybean oil through an epoxidation chemical reaction. Vegetable oils are widely used for chemical manipulation because of the high numbers of carbon-carbon double bonds; through the epoxidation, an epoxide group, which is a more reactive group than a double bond, is added to the soybean oil, transforming it in a good hydrochloric acid scavenger and good plasticizer.
