LOXANOL® CA 5086

LOXANOL CA 5086, formerly Macol 85 Polyol, is a clear liquid, nonvolatile, medium molecular weight coalescing solvent and plasticizer. This plasticizer is compatible with acrylics, epoxies, alkyds, polyesters, and phenolic resins. Latex caulks incorporated with this product display excellent elongation and recovery properties. Most formulations can tolerate various loading levels and still provide flexibility without decreasing the caulks ability to adhere to various substrates. LOXANOL CA 5086 increases flexibility and toughness, reduces brittleness, minimizes water sensitivity, and improves film formation.
