How to Replace MEKO with a Safe, Effective Alternative
Air-drying, solvent-borne alkyd paints represent a significant share of decorative paints. Typically, such paint formulations contain alkyd resins, fillers, pigments, solvents, and other additives tailored to applications. Additionally, metal catalysts (driers) are used in the formulations to facilitate air-drying of such paints.
Learn how 2-pentanone oxime (2-PO) provides comparable, if not better, anti-skinning performance than methyl ethyl ketoxime (MEKO) in air-drying alkyd paints and coatings. Test results show that 2-PO (EZ-Blox®) prevails on several fronts, including overall drying time, odor, color and dosage flexibility, with a much more favorable toxicological profile.
