Reaxis®  C716LV - Bismuth Neodecanoate (Low Viscosity)

REAXIS® C716LV, a Bismuth Carboxylate, is an effective, low viscosity/low metal content catalyst for use in various polyurethane applications. REAXIS® C716LV gives a good balance in front and back reactivity with lower viscosity than standard bismuth neodecanoate. REAXIS® C716LV is good a non-tin alternative to DBTL for various polyurethane applications including: coatings, adhesive/sealants, elastomers and foams.

For more information, we invite you to read our technical bulletins on Novel Bismuth Complexes for Polyurethane Catalysis and Strategies for Improving Back-End Reactivity of Bismuth Carboxylate Catalysts.
