Texanol (DN-12)

Texanol (DN-12) is the premier coalescent for latex paints. It performs well in all types of latex paints, in a variety of weather conditions, and over substrates with different levels of porosity. Texanol (DN-12) provides the highest level of film integrity at low levels of coalescent, enhancing the performance properties of the paint including low temperature coalescence, touch-up, scrub resistance, washability, color development, thermal flexibility, and resistance to mudcracking. Texanol (DN-12) also enhances thickening efficiency when used with associative thickeners.

Texanol (DN-12) also works well in a variety of other applications. It is an ideal choice as a retarder solvent for use in coil coatings and high-bake enamels. Its unique balance of properties also makes it useful for a variety of chemical specialty applications such as ore flotation / frothing, oil-drilling muds, wood preservative carriers, and floor polishes.

With a boiling point of 254°C, (vapor pressure 0.01 kPa @ 20°C), Texanol (DN-12) is not classified as a VOC according to European Union Decopaint Directive 2004/42/EC (commonly referred to as the Decopaint Directive); European Union Solvent Emissions Directive; and the China State Environmental Protection agency.
