Coalescing Agents

Bio-Based / Zero VOC / Block Resistance

Our coalescing agent platform is designed to lower VOCs, increase coalescent efficiency, improve low and high humidity coalescence and maintain excellent block resistance and dirt pick-up resistance properties. They provide a zero VOC* (reference TDS) alternative to volatile ester alcohols and glycol ethers that is non-yellowing, low viscosity, non-hazardous and improves moisture resistance. It is suitable for use in most water-based emulsions and dispersions including acrylic, PVA, VAE, SBR, self-crosslinking acrylic, polyurethane dispersions (PUD) and hybrid systems.
