Application Advice/Typical Applications

Dilution - MCT5AMF is miscible with water and many organic solvents such as lower alcohols, ketones, aromatic hydrocarbons and esters. If diluting MCT5AMF with water, care must be taken to keep the pH of the solution >7.0. Compatibility - MCT5AMF may also be combined with other M Grades in an appropriate solvent. It is also possible to combine MCT5AMF with many dispersion polymers at alkali pH, to improve stability and performance such as penetration and adhesion.

Ink binder, pigment dispersant in aqueous pastes, interior and exterior primers, adhesion promoter, alkali removable inks and adhesives.

Shipping and Storage

The product should be stored in a cool, dry place, where care must be taken to keep the containers tightly sealed and to observe regulations on the storage and handling of products containing solvents. MCT5AMF solution should be stored in sealed containers as received. Loss of ammonia or ethanol may result in the product separating into two layers or appearing cloudy. In this situation, the solution can be remixed by adding ammonia and/or ethanol as required. In the original sealed drums the product should remain fit for use for 12 months from the date of delivery. Product stored longer than 12 months should be tested before use.

MCT5AMF is supplied in 220 litre antistatic plastic drums and the minimum order quantity is 800kg.
