FASCAT® 4210Dibutyltin dichlorideDBTC683-18-1211-670-0C8H18Cl2SnWhite crystalline solid with several uses:
• an intermediate for producing dibutyltin compounds
• a precursor for glass coating
• a reactive additive for modification of synthetic rubber, such as polybutadiene, thereby improving carbon black dispersibility into the compound
FASCAT® 4224Dibutyltin bis(1-thioglyceride)68298-38-4269-561-9C14H32O4S2SnClear light colored liquid highly selective for polyurethane systems. Exhibits hydrolytic stability found to be useful in waterborne coatings and adhesives. Applications may include formulations when the adhesive or coating needs long pot life at room temperature, but would cure quickly at elevated temperatures such as a hot mold or oven.
FASCAT® 4233Butyltin mercaptide (Proprietary)ProprietaryProprietaryProprietaryLight amber oily liquid used in CASE applications, namely the synthesis and curing of polyurethanes. May provide more of a delayed action cure compared to organotin carboxylates such as FACAT® 4202.Proprietary
FASCAT® 4350Butyltin oxide (Proprietary)ProprietaryProprietaryProprietaryAmorphous white powder specifically designed for use in the preparation of alkyd resins in alcoholosis and esterification steps. Catalyst effectiveness has been shown in a number of short, medium, and long oil alkyds prepared from fusion and solvent processes. When used at concentrations of 0.03% to 0.04% by weight of total oil, this catalyst has demonstrated a reduction of 20% to 25% in reaction time as well as improved color and haze. Viable alternative to lithium catalyzed systems.Proprietary
