Trimethylolpropane is one of the most versatile polyols for the paint and varnish industry. This is due to the presence of three reactive hydroxyl groups in its structure.
Trimethylolpropane is a multi-purpose product that can significantly improve and diversify technical characteristics. For example, trimethylolpropane increases chemical resistance to aggressive environments and increases the solubility coefficient of alkyd resins, polyesters, and polyurethanes. It can also act as a branching agent for polyurethane oligomers and saturated polyester powders.
