There is a trend in the coatings market to shift away from solventborne and towards waterborne coatings. The consumer expects high-performance paints with virtually no odor. The 2010 EU directive on VOC requires coating systems with lower VOC levels. Taminco has developed two neutralizing amines that can help to address these new trends. Advantex® is a neutralizing amine that not only controls the pH but also has virtually no odor and displays a synergistic effect with surfactants and coupling agents. Vantex T® is a non-VOC neutralizing amine that acts partly as emulsifier and coalescent agent.
