Tyzor® TE, triethanolamine titanate

Tyzor® TE is a triethanolamine titanium chelate. It is an effective crosslinker and curing agent for water-based paints and coatings.
Product Overview
Tyzor® TE is a titanium triethanolamine complex. It will form a reactive hydroxy titanium chelate by hydrolysis with water allowing it to be stable in aqueous formulations for extended periods. Tyzor® TE will develop high viscosity aqueous gels when cross-linked with carbohydrate polymers such as guar making it an excellent cross linking additive to oil well fracturing fluids. The ability to cross link carbohydrates also proves useful in carbohydrate coated latex paint emulsions where Tyzor® TE is used as a curative and coalescing agent. Tyzor® TE is also an excellent source of titanium for catalysis of esterification, trans-esterification, condensation, and addition reactions. As a catalyst, Tyzor® TE is used as a non-toxic replacement for sulfuric acid, tin, and other hazardous catalysts used in the production of polyester polyols in adipic acid / BDO systems and phthalic acid / DEG systems.
