Dibutyl phthalate is used as a plasticizer for nitrocellulose, polyvinyl acetate, and polyvinyl chloride; a lubricant for aerosol valves; an antifoaming agent; a skin emollient; and a plasticizer in nail polish, fingernail elongators, and hair spray. Dibutyl phthalate is: 1) classified as a Hazardous Air Pollutant under the 1990 Clean Air Act amendments; 2) included on the Office of Prevention, Pesticides and Toxic Substances 1990 high production volume chemical list; 3) listed as a Toxic Release Inventory chemical; and 4) found at hazardous waste and Superfund sites.
