This primary C8 alkylamine monomer with a branched carbon backbone is used to make specialty acrylic polymers for several value added markets.
Often used in pigments, agricultural chemicals, and as a co-promoter for unsaturated polyesters to accelerate reaction times.
AAEM is a functional intermediate that readily polymerizes with other acrylic and meth acrylic monomers. It can be used in both solvent and water polymerizations. Due to its lower VOC emissions, it is often used in architectural and industrial coatings.
Available from monostearate to tristearate compositions, major applications include protective and decorative coatings where wetting, suspension, and flatting are critical characteristics. Also, they will not significantly reduce the gloss on formulations.
Aminox® Amine Antioxidants are a low-temperature reaction product of diphenylamine and acetone that effectively protects against heat, oxygen and flexing fatigue. They are easily dispersed, non-blooming, and has no effect on cure rates. An effective antioxidant in small amounts, it is an ideal choice for many rubber products.
Anox® Binary Blend Antioxidants is a family of binary synergistic blends that protect polymers during processing and long- term aging.
Anox® Hindered Phenolic Antioxidants are high molecular weight hindered phenolic antioxidants that provide low volatility and excellent resistance to extraction from polymer compounds.

Aquazol® provides excellent water solubility and thermal stability, making it a preferred substitute for PVOH and PVP in high temperature applications. Currently, it is used in a variety of hot-melt and pressure-sensitive adhesive products. In addition, Aquazol® is gaining acceptance in the ceramics industry as a greenware binder because of the clean burn-out and non-ionic nature of this polymer. Another unique application of this non-toxic polymer is painting and art conservation where it is used for consolidation, adhesion, and lamination of a variety of materials where it's preferred above gum arabic, PVA, and acrylic dispersions.
Other applications include, but are not limited to: coatings, textile and fibreglass sizing, lubricants, plasticizers, compatibilizers and films. The CAS Number of Aquazol is 25805-17-8
This white flake solid has a melt point of 118°C, which can offer significant performance advantages in a variety of hot melt adhesive applications. It also modifies melt flow characteristics with improved resistance to yellowing in powder coatings.
The calcium salt of distilled, hydrogenated fatty acids, it is typically used as a catalyst neutralizer or lubricant in polypropylenes. Choice of grade is often based on particle size.
