Kalama® Benzyl Alcohol NF/FCC

Kalama® Benzyl Alcohol NF/FCC by Emerald Performance Materials is a benzyl alcohol-based solvent or diluent with low volatility and low toxicity. It reduces viscosity, ensure processability at lower temperatures and increases film flexibility. It provides chlorine-free products to avoid corrosion or skin sensitization. It can be used as a coalescing agent or co-solvent in a wide range of curing agent formulations for epoxy resins used in coatings. It can also be used as a co-catalyst and plasticizer. It exhibits good performance in dissolving hydrophobic amines in water-based systems. Benzyl Alcohol is also a more environmentally friendly alternative to methyl chloride or N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP) for paint strippers. Kalama® Benzyl Alcohol NF/FCC is recommended for industrial paint stripping (in particular in formulations used for aircraft) and in architectural, professional and do-it-yourself paint stripping. The shelf life is 2 years.

Hansen Solubility Parameters

[19, 6, 12.5]
[δD - Dispersion force interactions, δP - Polar force interactions, δH - Hydrogen bond force interactions]

Please note, these HSP values are estimations. It is based upon the “like seeks like” principle. It splits an ingredients interactions into three parameters; δD (Dispersion force interactions), δP (Polar forces interactions) and δH (Hydrogen bond force interactions). Hansen Solubility Parameters can help you find a wide range of products that are predicted to be compatible with Kalama® Benzyl Alcohol NF/FCC. A practical determination of these HSP values would provide higher certainty. Learn More.
