Tyzor® GBO, titanium acetylacetonates

Tyzor® GBO is a freeze resistant, titanium acetylacetonate chelate used in printing inks and coatings as an adhesion promoter, cross-linker, and curative.
Product Overview
Tyzor® GBO organic chelate is a titanium acetylacetonate complex. It contains a mixture of alcohol solvents to resist freezing in low-temperature storage conditions. It can be applied to substrates as a primer, or in sol-gel systems to form polymeric TiO2 films. Tyzor® GBO also can be uses as a Lewis acid catalyst in esterification, trans-esterification, condensation, and addition reactions. Tyzor® GBA is an excellent cross linker and adhesion promoter that make it highly utilized in a variety of inks and coatings applications as a curative.
