VOC-exempt TBAc solvent to meet lower VOC product content limits

TBAc solvent is:

  • Versatile, non-HAP, VOC-exempt*
  • An excellent replacement for VOC solvents used in adhesives, caulks, sealants and cleaners
  • A cost-effective solution to your compliance and performance needs

Producers of adhesives and sealants rely on VOC-exempt TBAc solvent to meet lower VOC product content limits. This cost-effective solvent can be used to reduce the VOC content of formulated products such as:

  • Construction adhesives and sealants
  • Single-ply roofing adhesives
  • Contact cements
  • Packaging adhesives
  • Pressure-sensitive adhesives
  • Rubber and silicone-based adhesives, caulks and sealants
  • Adhesive and sealant removers

Product benefits:

  • VOC compliance with solvent-borne performance
  • Dissolves a broad range of resins
  • Medium evaporation rate
  • Easy to use
  • Stable formulations
  • Not a VOC for LEED EQ Credit 4.1 purposes**

*TBAC is now VOC-exempt in Canada (architectural and automotive coatings) and 49 states and most of the California.
**TBAC is VOC-exempt per Green Seal standard for Commercial Adhesives G-36. Adhesives and Sealants formulated with TBAC can earn LEED EQ credit 4.1 if the VOC content does not exceed the limit listed in SCAQMD rule 1168 for the product category.*
