OXYMELT®

OXYMELT®

Oxymelt® degassing agents eliminate pinholes without sacrificing film build. The superior yellowing resistance of the products makes them particularly suitable for applications that cannot tolerate discoloration associated with the use of benzoin.

Oxymelt®additives can also be used to minimize residue buildup in ovens caused by the re-crystallization of benzoin that has volatilized during cure. These additives can also be used in conjunction with benzoin to maximize synergy between the chemistries.

Product NameProduct Description
OXYMELT® A-2Capable of both reducing the melt viscosity of powder coating formulations and eliminating pinholes without affecting the applied film color. Oxymelt A-2 is noted primarily for its degassing capability in powder coatings cured in gas ovens. This degassing agent is well suited for polyesterHAA and polyurethane systems that emit volatiles during cure, and it is also appropriate for other traditional powder coating systems such as polyester-TGIC, hybrids, acrylics and epoxies.
OXYMELT® A-4Capable of both reducing the melt viscosity of powder coating formulations and eliminating surface defects, especially pinholes, without affecting the applied film color. The additive is noted primarily for its degassing capability in powder coatings cured in electric ovens. Oxymelt A-4 can replace part or all of the benzoin in a powder coating formulation, and is non-yellowing, nonfuming and imparts superior anti-gassing
properties. For best results, the product should be used at a concentration of 0.5-4.0%.
