The secret of octoates:
Neutral color, mild odor and great stability and allow for high metal concentrations in products that maintain significant quality uniformity. Octoates are metal salts of 2–Ethylhexanoic acid solved in mineral turpentine and other solvents adequate to the different uses. They represent a significant step ahead from the today “historic” linoleates, talates y naphthenate due to ample advantages of color, odor, stability, viscosity and prices. Moreover, they are more cost-effective than those of salts derived from other synthetic acids.
