|BNT Product Name
DOTAc is used as a catalyst for various esterification and transesterification reactions, for example for varnishes and coatings or gel masses. In polyurethane-based systems, it is used for adhesives and sealants as well as casting resin systems and is considered an alternative to the more conventional dibutyltin acetate due to the comparatively lower toxicity.
The same properties make dioctyltin diacetate an option for other polymers and silicones: the crosslinking of silicone resins and cold crosslinking silicones can be catalyzed by DOTAc, end-use applications can be found, for example, in the automotive sector.
Oleochemistry offers further uses: as a catalyst for acrylic acid esters and fatty acid esters.
