Application of dioctyltin dicocoate in plastic stabilizers

In the production and application of plastic products, heat stabilizers play a vital role. They can effectively inhibit the degradation of plastics caused by heat, light and other factors during processing and use, ensuring the physical and mechanical properties of the material. performance. Dioctyltin dicocoate (DOTE), as a highly efficient organotin compound, is a leader in the plastic stabilizer family, especially in the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) industry, showing excellent performance.


The rapid development of the plastics industry has placed an increasing demand for heat stabilizers, and the improvement of environmental protection and safety standards has prompted the industry to seek better stabilizer solutions. Due to its unique chemical structure, dioctyltin dicocoate not only has excellent thermal stability, but also exhibits low toxicity and good biocompatibility, making it an ideal choice to replace traditional lead-containing or highly toxic stabilizers.

Mechanism of action

The mechanism of action of dioctyltin dicocoate in PVC processing mainly involves chain transfer reaction and free radical capture. It can effectively capture HCl generated by thermal degradation of PVC, prevent hydrogen chloride from further causing PVC molecular chain breakage, and at the same time regulate the growth of the polymer chain through chain transfer and reduce the formation of unstable ends. In addition, its long chain structure provides good steric hindrance effect, protecting PVC from thermal oxygen and ultraviolet attack, thereby significantly improving the weather resistance and service life of the product.

Application areas

  1. PVC soft products: Among soft products such as wires and cables, floor leather, and artificial leather, DOTE ensures the beauty and durability of the products with its excellent transparency and low exudation. Meets food contact grade safety requirements.
  2. PVC hard products: Such as door and window profiles, pipes, plates, etc., DOTE helps to improve the processing fluidity of the products, reduce defects such as fish eyes and cracks during the processing, and improve the quality of the products. dimensional stability.
  3. Packaging materials: In food packaging materials such as films, bottle caps, and plastic wrap, DOTE acts as a non-toxic stabilizer to ensure food safety while giving the materials good sealing and moisture resistance. .

Performance Advantages

  • Low toxicity: Compared with traditional lead salts and some organotin stabilizers, the low toxicity of DOTE makes it widely used in food contact plastic products.
  • Transparency: In transparent PVC products, the use of DOTE will hardly cause an increase in haze, maintaining the high transparency of the material.
  • Weather resistance: Excellent resistance to oxidation and UV rays, extending the service life of plastic products used outdoors.
  • Processing performance: Good lubricity reduces wear on processing equipment and improves production efficiency.

Challenges and Limitations

Although dioctyltin dicocoate has shown many advantages, its potential ecological risks still require attention. Organotin compounds are not easily degraded in the environment and may cause cumulative toxicity to aquatic organisms. Therefore, the use of organotin has begun to be strictly regulated internationally, driving the industry to develop more environmentally friendly alternatives, such as the development of organocalcium-zinc stabilizers and new organotin stabilizers.


Dioctyltin dicocoate has become an indispensable part of the modern plastics industry with its unique properties in the field of plastic stabilizers, especially in PVC products. However, as the global awareness of sustainable development and environmental protection increases, developing greener and more efficient stabilizer systems to balance performance and environmental impact will be an important issue in the field of plastic additives in the future. Therefore, the research and application of dioctyltin dicocoate should not only ensure product performance, but also continuously explore measures to mitigate its environmental impact, and actively seek and evaluate a new generation of alternatives to meet the needs of the sustainable development of the plastics industry.
