Plasticizers (UK: plasticisers) or dispersants are additives that increase the plasticity or fluidity of a material. The dominant applications are for plastics, especially polyvinyl chloride (PVC). The properties of other materials are also improved when blended with plasticizers including concrete, clays, and related products.

An example of the most common, general purpose plasticizer is DOP, dioctyl phthalate, also known as DEHP, or diethylhexyl phthalate. This plasticizer is most commonly seen in PVC, but can be found in other polymer systems as well.
