Di 2-Ethylhexyl Adipate

DOA (Dioctyl Adipate) is a plasticizer that is commonly used in the production of flexible PVC products. It is a clear, colorless liquid that has a low viscosity and a mild odor.


DOA has several important properties that make it useful as a plasticizer:

  • It has a low viscosity, which allows it to flow easily and mix well with other materials.
  • It has a low volatility, which means that it does not easily evaporate into the air.
  • It has good low-temperature flexibility, which allows it to remain flexible even at low temperatures.
  • It has good electrical properties, making it useful in electrical applications.

PVC items containing DOA has very good low temperature properties, such as flexibility and duration. DOA is chemically stable and resistant to discoloration on extended exposure to heat.


  • It improves the flexibility and durability of PVC products, making them less likely to crack or break.
  • It improves the processing properties of PVC, making it easier to work with during production.
  • It improves the heat stability of PVC products, making them less likely to degrade when exposed to high temperatures.
  • It is a cost-effective plasticizer option compared to other plasticizers like DOP (dioctyl phthalate).

Application Areas:

  • Wire and cable insulation
  • Automotive components such as dashboard covers and door panels
  • Medical tubing and equipment
  • Flooring
  • Artificial leather
  • Film and sheeting for packaging applications

LEBA DOA is a nearly colorless, clear liquid plasticizer with hardly noticeable characteristic smell. It is mostly compatible with most of the plasticizers and it is miscible with most solvents.
