Tyzor TnBT (tetra-n-butyl titanate) is a highly reactive organic alkoxy titanate with 100% active content. It is a clear, colorless to pale yellow liquid that is very sensitive to moisture.
Tyzor TnBT acts as a Lewis acid catalyst in processes such as esterification, transesterification,condensation and addition. It also can be used to promote adhesion and cross-linking of polymers, or to form polymeric titanium dioxide layers used as binders or coatings.
Tyzor TnBT is typically formulated with the other ingredients in catalysis, crosslinking or paint applications, and it is often added last to prevent undesired pre-reactions. It also may be applied as a primer from dilute solution.
Total or partial hydrolysis of Tyzor TnBT in sol-gel applications, typically in combination with other metal alkoxides, produces metal oxide systems for use as binders or coatings.
