Vantex™ T is a neutralization amine additive that will allow paint manufacturers to formulate high quality paints, having virtually no amine odour. The product has a very low vapor pressure exhibiting virtually no odour. It can be used as a replacement for current paint neutralization systems.

Vantex™ T’s VOC contribution is dependent on regional test method.

  • USA EPA test Method 24 reports the amine does not contribute to the VOC content.
  • ASTM D6886 with methyl palmitate as the GC marker reports a VOC content.
  • In Europe Vantex™ T is not considered a VOC by Article 5 of EU directive 2004/42/EC due to the boiling point being above 250°C.
