K-FLEX® Dibenzoate Coalescents are REACh registered solutions for excellent performance in low-VOC paints and coatings. K-FLEX delivers excellent performance to a wide range of applications, including interior and exterior architectural paints, industrial coatings, direct-to-metal coatings, color dispersions, concrete and metal primers, and lacquers (nitrocellulose and acrylic).
K-FLEX low-VOC coalescents have excellent compatibility with acrylic (styrene or ethylene copolymers) and polyvinyl acetate, the typical polymers used in paints and coatings. They are tailored to create stronger, better coalesced films with superior overall performance characteristics that often exceed the performance of traditional high-VOC coalescents.
