|BNT Product Name
Dioctyltin maleate is a tin-organic compound (short: DOTM). Normally a stable, water-insoluble and combustible white powder, it is usually offered dissolved in toluene and then appears slightly yellowish and viscous.
Dioctyltin maleate is used as a catalyst for the crosslinking of silicones as well as for esterification and esterification reactions. It can be used with polyurethane-based systems and improves the storage stability of adhesives, for example.
In addition, dioctyltin maleate is effective as a heat stabilizer in plastics and thus enables longer product life cycles.
