Versatic™ Acid 10, a hazardless product, can replace 2-ethylhexanoic acid for use in paints, polyurethane foams, PVC plastics and more.
More generally, it can be used as such, as an intermediate for organic derivatives, as a metallic salt and as an ammonium salt.
Versatic™ Acid 10 is a synthetic mixture of isomers of tertiary carboxylic acids with ten carbon atoms. It can be used to replace 2-ethylhexanoic acid and most of its salts, which have been reclassified as Reprotoxic Category 1B by the Risk Assessment Committee of ECHA, taking effect November 2023.
Versatic Acid 10 can be used as such, as an intermediate for organic derivatives, as a metallic salt and as an ammonium salt.
It serves markets like paint dryers, PVC heat stabilizers, metal-based catalysts, tire adhesion promoters, fuel additives, metal working fluids, antifreeze, bitumen emulsifying, esters for solvents or lubricants, cosmetics, personal care, detergents, metal extraction, polymerization initiators.
