Cithrol™ PDO

Cithrol PDO is a bio-based ester used as a carrier fluid in liquid colour concentrates for improved pigment dispersion in LDPE and PVC in particular. It is also compatible with several other polymer types. It acts at the pigment surface to improve compatibility with the polymer matrix and reduce pigment re-agglomeration.
