Tris Amino™ Crystals As Additive Formaldehyde Scavenger

Motivated by concerns related to the environment, health, and safety, there has been a significant transformation in coating technologies over the past few decades. This shift primarily stems from efforts to reduce Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and other hazardous substances in coating formulations.

A current trend in the global coatings industry focuses on the development of functional coatings designed not only to restrict the emission of VOCs into the environment but also to extract and eliminate VOCs originating from other sources

In coatings and industrial processes, formaldehyde scavengers are often used to reduce or eliminate the release of formaldehyde into the environment. Formaldehyde scavengers are substances or compounds designed to react with and neutralize formaldehyde, a chemical known for its strong and unpleasant odor.

In an era where formaldehyde scavengers often raise environmental issues, TRIS AMINO™ CRYSTALS shines as a symbol of responsible innovation, countering the ecological threats posed by many traditional accelerators. 

Introduction about TRIS AMINO™ Crystals

TRIS AMINO is well-known worldwide as a buffer in biochemical reactions. It can be used to buffer anywhere within the pH range of 7 to 9 by utilizing a combination of the free base and its salts; the hydrochloride salt is especially popular for this purpose. In fact, a buffer solution containing TRIS AMINO and its hydrochloride salt at a molar ratio of 1:3 is considered a standard buffer solution for use in the physiological pH range of 7.3 to 7.5. 

TRIS AMINO™ Crystals is a versatile amino alcohol utilized in water-based applications and as a foundational component for synthesis, known for its exceptional environmental health and safety credentials. It serves a dual purpose as a crosslinker/hardener and chain extender in various applications, including epoxy resins, powder coatings, adhesives, and other reactive chemistry applications.

Product advantages of TRIS AMINO™ Crystals

TRIS AMINO buffer demonstrates mild alkalinity, buffering capability and primary aminotriol functionality. These properties can offer the formulator advantageous combinations of active material solubilization into aqueous systems, chemical stabilization of actives against degradation and pH buffering of solutions. At the same time, the presence of TRIS AMINO in an aqueous formulation will not compromise favorable toxicological characteristics. These attributes of TRIS AMINO can be applied to topical, injectable, oral and ophthalmic systems.

  • High-capacity formaldehyde scavenging
  • Will not contribute to color instability in low-VOC paints and inks
  • Versatile raw material for chemical and polymer synthesis
  • Excellent environmental health and safety profile
