Bismuth is a proven, fast gel catalyst for many coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomer urethane applications. The use of Zinc crosslinks and helps with the cure on the back end.
BiCATs 8106, 8210, 8840, and 8842 are used extensively in spray foams, particularly in conjunction with the new HFO (Hydrofluoro-Olefin) Solstice from Honeywell. BiCAT’s 8840 and 8842 are patented molecules designed to be hydrolytically stable.
These products compare to Umicore’s Valikat Bi line, King’s K-Kat products, Reaxis’ bismuth line, Vertellus’ Coscat products, Dura Chemicals’ Duroct Bismuth line, and Borchers Kat 320.
BiCAT catalysts are produced by Shepherd Chemical in Cincinnati, OH. Everchem is the exclusive distributor of these products in North America.
