Versene™ 100 Chelating Agent product card banner

Dow North America

VERSENE™ 100 Chelating Agent

Applications: Processing & Packaging, Oil, Gas & Mining, Paper & Pulp

Product Families: Functional Additives, Builders & Chelators, Adjuvants & Formulation Ingredients

End Uses: Cleaners, Descalers, Textiles

VERSENE™ 100 Chelating Agent is an aqueous solution of the tetrasodium salt of ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid. Na4EDTA is the strongest, most versatile, and widely used chelant for controlling metal ions over a broad pH range in aqueous systems. It will not chelate monovalent metal ions such as sodium or potassium, but will chelate most multivalent metal ions (e.g., Fe, Cu, Mn, Ca, Mg, Zn) in a 1:1 molar ratio. The chelation reaction is virtually instantaneous in most cases. Calcium and other alkaline earth metals are most effectively chelated above pH 4. Na4EDTA chelates most transition metals below pH 12. VERSENE 100 is completely miscible with water, but is not soluble in organic systems. Na4EDTA is stable under widely varying conditions of temperature, acidity, alkalinity, and the presence of other chemicals. Na4EDTA is attached, however, by strong oxidizing agents such as hypochlorite bleach. In some applications, Na4EDTA can be reclaimed for reuse.

Applications: Chemical & Industrial Manufacturing, Textiles & Nonwovens, Fluids & Lubricants

Product Families: Additives, Functional Additives, Performance Additives

Chemical Family: Alcohols, Amines

End Uses: Metalworking Fluids, Cleaners, Detergents

DOW Triethanolamine (TEA) offers a broad spectrum of application opportunities, primarily in detergents and textile finishing. Other applications include use as intermediates in concrete additives and adhesive, rubber, agricultural and photographic chemicals; use as a component of cement grinding aids; use as “down hole” in oil well chemicals and in metalworking to prevent corrosion; and use as catalysts that promote stability during the reaction process in the manufacture of flexible and rigid urethane foams. Because TEA combines the properties of amines and alcohols, TEA exhibits the unique capability of undergoing reactions common to both groups. As an amine, TEA is mildly alkaline and reacts with acids to form salts or soaps. As an alcohol, TEA is hygroscopic and can be esterfied. Features & Benefits Detergents TEA imparts a reserve alkalinity to the laundry bath, which is essential to efficient cleaning. TEA is an effective oil and anti-redeposition agent. Textile Finishing TEA is used as reaction intermediates for the preparation of durable press fabric finishes and softeners. When reacted to form amine soaps, useful as scouring agents for wool and silk because of its low alkalinity. Because it is hygroscopic, TEA is used in the preparation of vat printing pastes.

Dispersion of precipitates in the cleaning bath to avoid settling and scaling on surfaces and fibers. Improvement of filming maintenance by soil dispersion, which minimize organic components deposition on glass and dish wares. Increase of bleach stability especially in chlorinated formulations by binding heavy metals which destabilize chlorine species through catalytic reactions. Use in medium alkaline to very alkaline formulations, due to high solubility of ACUSOL™ 445N Detergent Polymer in caustic products.
