Amines & Surfactants
DIMETHYLETHANOLAMINE (DMEA) is a clear, colorless, mobile liquid with an ammoniacal odor. It is miscible with water, alcohols, ether, and aromatic solvents. Since it contains both a tertiary amine group and a hydroxyl group. Dimethylethanolamine is used in the preparation of water-reducible coating formulations.
It possesses a strong fishy odor reminiscent of ammonia and is also the smell of the hawthorn plant. Triethylamine is mainly used in the production of quaternary ammonium compounds for textile auxiliaries and quaternary ammonium salts of dyes. It is also a catalyst and acid neutralizer for condensation reactions and is useful as an intermediate for manufacturing medicines, pesticides and other chemicals
MEA is used in aqueous solutions for scrubbing certain acidic gases. It is used as feedstock in the production of detergents, emulsifiers, polishes, pharmaceuticals, corrosion inhibitors, chemical intermediates
Diethanolamine 85% LFG
Diethanolamine LFG-85% a low-freeze grade of diethanolamine. It is an aqueous blend designed to provide a lower freeze point product for those who can tolerate the presence of water in their application. Freezing will occur at approximately 0°C versus the 28°C for diethanolamine.
Nonophenol Ethoxylated Surfactants<
SURFONIC N Series 4,6,8,9,9.5,10,10.5,13,15
SURFONIC N series surfactants are ethoxylates of nonylphenol. The number represents the mole amount. It is an oil soluble, water dispersible, nonionic surface-active agent which is compatible with other nonionic surfactants and with most anionic and cationic surfactants.
- wetting agents
- solubilizing agents
