Tytan™

Organotitanate

TYTAN organotitanate and organozirconate grades are used to catalyse esterification and transesterification reactions. This includes the synthesis of ester based monomers, such as acrylates and methacrylates. Polyester polyol resins and plasticizers are also synthesized using organotitanate catalysts.

TYTAN organotitanate and organozirconate grades are used to catalyse esterification and transesterification reactions. This includes the synthesis of ester based monomers, such as acrylates and methacrylates. Polyester polyol resins and plasticizers are also synthesized using organotitanate catalysts.

TYTAN products are well known catalysts in the production of polyesters and polyolefins as well. Products that fall into the catalysis category often find applications in other areas such as adhesion promotion and protective coatings for example given the versatile nature of these chemistries.
