C12-Ester Alcohol (Haltanol, Texanol)


This Ester Alcohol is a low odor, almost zero VOC coalescing agent. By definition, a non-VOC remains in the dried film where this acts as a permanent plasticizer yielding a slightly softer film. To compensate, a slightly harder, higher Tg, resin is required to obtain the desired final film hardness. This product cannot be substituted into an existing formulation based on a fugitive coalescent with the expectation of obtaining the same film hardness and properties. Traditional fugitive coalescents such as ester alcohols and glycol ethers have some water solubility and partition between the aqueous and polymer phases. It is water insoluble and migrates completely into the polymer particle.

2,2,4-Trimethylpentane-1,3-diol monoisobutyrate (Haltanol) is a high boiling, clear, colorless liquid, ester-alcohol coalescing solvent. The principal uses of Haltanol include latex paints, inks and industrial coatings.
