Chemceed Sebacic Acid Granular (SBA)
Applications: Other Paints & Coatings Applications, Fluids & Lubricants, Automotive Fluids & Lubricants
Product Families: Soap Thickeners, Organic Acids, Surface Protective Additives
Chemical Family: Sebacates, Adipates, Sebacates & Maleates, Castor Oil Derivatives
End Uses: Ester Manufacturing, Alkyd Resin Manufacturing, Paint Manufacturing
Sebacic Acid is a naturally occurring dicarboxylic acid which is a derivative of castor oil. Sebacic Acid is largely used in the manufacturing process of Nylon 6-10. Sebacic Acid can be used as a corrosion inhibitor in metalworking fluids and as a complexing agent in greases. In particular, Sebacic Acid is used as a thickener in lithium complex grease. In addition, Sebacic Acid can be used as an intermediate in the production of aromatics, antiseptics and painting materials as well as in the synthesis of polyamide and alkyd resins. Sebacic Acid can also be found in plasticizers, lubricants, hydraulic fluids, cosmetics, and candle manufacturing. In cosmetics, Sebacic acid can be used as a buffering ingredient for pH adjustment or a chemical intermediate in the synthesis of various esters.
Chemceed Dodecanedioic Acid (DDDA)
Applications: Chemical Building Blocks & Intermediates, Other Adhesives & Sealants Applications, Other Paints & Coatings Applications
Product Families: Organic Acids, Soap Thickeners, Surface Protective Additives
Chemical Family: Carboxylic Acids & Derivatives
End Uses: Metal Cleaner, Metal Working Fluids, Corrosion Inhibitor Production
Dodecanedioic Acid is a dicarboxylic acid used in the manufacturing of nylon 6, 12, adhesives, powder coatings and paints. In addition DDDA is used in the production of corrosion inhibitors, which are extensively used for water treatment, pulp & paper, chemical facilities and other industrial facilities. When used in a mixture with other dibasic acids DDDA is especially effective as a ferrous corrosion inhibitor for metalworking fluids, engine coolants, metal cleaners, aqueous hydraulic fluids, and die cast release agents. DDDA can also be used as a complexing agent for lithium complex grease which will increase dropping point and improve mechanical stability.
