Which one better DINP or ATBC

DINP by far.

I definitely need to try some of this :D Can you show us a video of an Intex black whale treated with DINP ? If you have one, of course ^^

I did not do this to a Intex black whale, but they have the same kind of paint, so it will be similar in this regard. And these whales are rather soft from 2018 and onwards, so you'll need less DINP to achieve a similar softness to the shark in the video.

Nice. I've used ATBC because it was available. Hugely problematic in terms of structural integrity (I just dumped it inside through the valve.) - I think it was this, DINP, that I got through ebay a long long time ago to actually fix leeched plasticizer. Any recommendations on where to source DINP and would you recommend the "dump it inside" method for more stretch (as you were saying, get a balloon)?

I sell DINP: mail me at mytniy@protonmail.com and I sell it on eBay too, but it is more expensive to buy from eBay, than directly from me.

Dump inside will work but I do not recommend it because it will weaken the seams. In my opinion dump inside method is only fully suitable for the overlapped seams toys. Pinch toys will get the seams weakened, and double seams and reinforced toys will collect excessive amounts of plasticizer under their folds which is not good either. All of this is not as severe as it would be with ATBC at any comparative amount added.

@mytniy: I might shoot you a mail sometime, thanks for the insight. And yeah, I've done reinforced toys with ATBC (An intex shark, even) and it worked rather well. If I were to do this again (with ATBC or DINP) I'd probably take great care to avoid these folds during reinforcement.

@Eskir: By folds I mean sticking out not glued parts of the reinforcement stripe. Of course you can avoid this altogether but it would be much harder to do everywhere, and you won't have excessive vinyl ready to be glued from the inside in case a hole appears along the seam.

@mytniy: No, no, that's what I mean. Should be doable though, I use a brush for applying glue now.
