BERSET® 2169

BERSET® 2169 is a blocked crosslinker. The partially blocked chemistry of BERSET® 2169 provides a stable viscosity during the coating color preparation. The reactivity of BERSET® 2169 is greatly accelerated during the drying process, thus resulting in high wet rub and wet pick resistance at the reel. BERSET® 2169 crosslinks all synthetic and natural binders, resulting in a high degree of wet rub and wet pick resistance off the machine. However, as with all glyoxal-based crosslinkers, BERSET® 2169 is the most efficient at crosslinking starch-based coatings.


Natural Lubricant

Our Castorwax solution is a natural lubricant alternative for petroleum-based waxes in rubber, tubing, & plastics applications.  Hydrogenated Castor Oil has a discrete melt point, which provides consistency relative to other waxes.
