Metal Carboxylates

Metal Carboxylates

Metal carboxylates are chemical substances consisting of metal and the long-chain fatty acid. The catalysis of the metal is applied and used as a curing promoter and adhesion promoter. Metal carboxylates acts an accelerator of the chemical reaction.
The metal carboxylates are used in various applications. Key properties include its beneficial characteristics as organic metal compounds.
DIC possess the technology to design various kind of metal carboxylates;
please contact to your local DIC representative.

Metal Carboxylate Applications

The catalysis of the metal is applied, and it is used for various applications.

  • Driers for paints and printing inks

  • Unsaturated polyester accelerator

  • Urethane catalysts

  • It is used as curing agent of paints such as alkyd resin paint and printing inks.

  • It is used as a accelerator of unsaturated polyester resin which is used in the manufacturing of bathtubs and decorative boards; initiating radical polymerization.

  • It is used as a curing agent of polyurethane which acts as a waterproofing layer and barrier.

  • Additives for lubricating oils and greases

  • Catalysts for organic reactions

  • Fungicides and Wood preservatives

  • It is used as extreme pressure additives and rust preventives of metal working fluid and grease.

  • It is used for the polymerization reaction such as synthetic rubber and the oxidation synthesis of various reactions.

  • It is used as the wood preservative and fungicides of electric wire coating.

  • Steel cord-rubber adhesion promoters(for tire)

  • Cobalt carboxylate is used as a adhesion promoter of tire rubber to the steel core.

The various functions of the metal carboxylates for practical applications:

  • Metal carboxylates are used as paint dryer. Dryers accelerate the process of oxidation and polymerization reactions of oil based resin.

  • Using the catalysis in metal carboxylates, accelerates oxidation reactions and polymerization reactions.

  • Metal carboxylates promote the radical polymerization of the unsaturated polyester resins. In addition, they promote the curing of various resins.
