Get High Performance and Consistency in Latex Paint Applications
Eastman Texanol™ ester alcohol is the premier coalescent for latex paints. It performs well in all types of latex paints, in a variety of weather conditions, and over substrates with different levels of porosity. Texanol ester alcohol provides the highest level of film integrity at low levels of coalescent, enhancing the performance properties of the paint including, low-temperature coalescence, touch-up, scrub resistance, washability, color development, thermal flexibility and resistance to mudcracking. It also enhances thickening efficiency when used with associative thickeners.
Texanol ester alcohol works well in a variety of other applications. It’s an ideal choice as a retarder solvent for use in coil coatings and high-bake enamels. And its unique balance of properties makes it useful for a variety of chemical specialty applications, such as ore flotation/frothing, oil-drilling muds, wood preservative carriers and floor polishes.
