SeperatorCoasol™ 290 Plus is a mixture of Di-Esters.

Total diester content   % w/w    min. 99

Coasol™ 290 Plus is positioned as a superior replacement to the 2,2,4-Trimethyl-1,3-pentanediol Diisobutyrate.

Coasol™ 290 Plus has a boiling range of 290°C - 310°C, as against the prevailing Pentanediol Di Isobutyrate Esters (i.e. Optifilm Enhancer 300, NX800) which has a boiling point of of 281.5°C. Coasol™ 290 Plus, is said demonstrate and replace the Pentanediol Diisobutyrate Esters with an efficacy of upto 50% (The benefits of the Coasol™ 290 Plus vary depending on the resin systems used by the Paint Formulator).

Advantages of the Coasol™ 290 Plus v/s prevailing Pentanediol Di Isobutyrate Esters are as belowHigh Eco-Tox Profile
  • Non-VOC, biodegradable and low odour ‘on wall’.
  • Coasol™ 290 Plus isn’t toxic and is Non HAPS (Hazardous Air Pollutant).
  • No esters of butyric acid so no risk of unpleasant odours when paint applied to alkaline walls.
High Performance & Efficiency
  • Can use 20-50% less than the Optifilm Enhancer 300 (depending on the resin system) to achieve a low MFFT.
  • Reduced solvent loading to allow incorporation of open time extenders and freeze/thaw protection systems.
  • Improved paint rheology and pigment wetting
  • Incorporated easily in low shear mixing
  • Minimal water solubility improves portioning performance
Enhanced film properties
  • Improved open time enhances film formation
  • Film integrity and durability improved by drying profile
  • Excellent water resistance
  • Improved colour development & minimal impact on gloss
  • Improved film hardness without cracking
  • Improved wet rub performance
  • Resistant to hydrolysis so useable on Alkaline surfaces
