Eastman’s Neutralizing Amine for Architectural Coatings

Advantex multifunctional neutralizing amine enables a variety of benefits to architectural coatings, including superb pigment dispersion, excellent emulsion stability, and outstanding syneresis control. Formulating paints with Advantex can also reduce overall paint raw material costs.

Vantex-T is a non-VOC additive under the Paints Directive 2004/42/EC and is an excellent multifunctional neutralizing amine that enables formulators to create environmentally friendly, lower odor, low VOC paints and coatings. It has virtually no ammonia or amine-type odor. The lack of odor from Vantex-T is a benefit in formulating paints for interior use.
