Determining alternatives to DEHP for PVC medical devices

DOTP-plasticised PVC compound of 75 Shore A durometer currently cost less than one plasticised with TOTM. This is because TOTM is far more expensive. In addition, TOTM is a much less efficient plasticiser than DOTP, meaning you have to use more TOTM to achieve the same durometer—and plasticiser today is more expensive than PVC resin.
