Monooctyltin tris-ethylhexylthioglycolate is an organotin compound, also known as MOTE or MOTEHTG. It can be used, for example, as a catalyst in a number of polyurethane plastics, for example, for molded foams and for rigid, semi-rigid or flexible integral skin polyurethane foams.
Monooctyltin tris-ethylhexylthioglycolate can also be used as a stabilizer for plastics. Here it increases the weathering resistance of the final product and enables longer life cycles.
Appropriate suction should be available in handling on the processing machines. The containers must be kept cool and dry in a place that is well ventilated. They should remain tightly closed. The formation of aerosols must be avoided.
