Oleochemicals offer a range of cost effective additives widely used in polymer processing. Besides a range of processing aids, you'll find here anti-static, anti-fogging agents, stabilisers, rheology modifiers and plasticisers. The emulsifiers and dispersing agents that are presented here for emulsion polymerisation are only a part of our range of our tensides. More of those can be found in our full product range presented on this website.
Fatty acid esters
We have a broad range of emulsifiers and solubilisers. We have categorised this specific group according to their chemical structure.
In the group of fatty acids, we have a wide range of products consisting of one carboxylic group with an ever changing alkyl chain starting from C6 and ending at C22. This broad range of fatty acids not only includes chemically pure fatty acids, but also the natural cuts from amongst others coconut and rapeseed oil. Fatty Acids are widely used in all kinds of different industries and depending on their chain length, contribute with unique characteristics to the value of your formulation.
Fatty alcohols, both in the free state and combined with fatty acids as waxes, are found in large quantities in many marine oils, but they do not occur to any significant extent in land animal or vegetable oils. In fact, commercially available fatty alcohols are obtained by either high pressure hydrogenation or sodium reduction. The first method is predominantly used in the production of saturated fatty alcohols. Sodium reduction of the methylester is used for unsaturated fatty alcohol. Fatty alcohols are not only used as chemical intermediates, but also in formulation chemistry.
