FASCAT® catalysts are used to manufacture phthalate esters, in particular dioctyl phthalate (DIOP) esters. These high molecular weight phthalate esters are used as plasticizers in a wide variety of end uses from enteric coatings of pharmaceuticals, to viscosity control agents, film formers, suspending agents, personal-care products, and soft plastics.

Solid and liquid catalysts are available and can be distilled or filtered from the finished products.
