Product Description

Vantex™ T is available as a colorless to light yellow liquid with a slight amine-like odor.

This pioneering amine additive is changing the world of paints and coatings by enabling environmentally friendly, low-odor, low VOC formulations.

Vantex™ T is a neutralization amine additive that will allow paint manufacturers to formulate high quality paints, having virtually no amine odor. The product has a very low vapor pressure, with virtually no odor. It can be used as a replacement for current paint neutralization systems.

VOC contribution is dependent on region and test method. In the U.S., testing by EPA Method 24 shows that this product does not contribute to the VOC content. However, ASTM D6886 with methyl palmitate as the GC marker shows that it is a VOC. In Europe, this product is not considered a VOC by article 5 of EU directive 2004/42/EC due to the boiling point being above 250°C.
