TCC’s Benzoguanamine is a white crystalline powder that is a member of the triazine family of organic chemical compounds. Like all triazines it is a weak base that is insoluble in water. Its chemical formula is C9H9N5. Its melting point it 224° to 228° C. Benzoguanamine is stable under ordinary conditions.
A triazine is one of three organic chemicals, isomeric with each other, whose molecular formula is C3H3N3and whose empirical formula is CHN. Triazines are useful as chromophore groups in colorants. Some triazine family compounds are used in the pharmaceutical industry as coupling agents for the synthesis of peptide in solid phase as well as solution and as a side chain of antibiotics.
Benzoguanamine, specifically, 2,4-Diamino-6-phenly-1,3,5-triazine, is used to increase thermoset properties of alkyd, acrylic and formaldehyde resins.
