TMS D CATALYST GRADE


ANTIMONY TRIOXIDE
CAS No. [1309644]

TMS D Catalyst Grade antimony trioxide is a special grade of TMS manufactured expressly for
the production of antimony glycolate to be used as a catalyst in the polymerization of polyester
resins. TMS D has excellent solubility in ethylene glycol to give solutions with a low turbidity. Great
care is taken to ensure lot to lot variation is minimal.
