Product Line: Surfactants - Cationic and fatty amines
Armeen 18D Pastilles is a distilled octadecylamine.
Armeen 18D Pastilles is a primary amine with an 18 carbon hydrophobic tail.
Armeen 18D Pastilles is used as a filming amine for mold release and corrosion inhibition applications.
Armeen 18D Pastilles is a distilled, octadecylamine flake derived from vegetable sources.
Armeen 18D Pastilles is most commonly used as a filming amine but it can also be used as an emulsifier, thickener, and boundary lubricant.
Armeen 18D Pastilles is well suited as a processing aid for elastomers and provides outstanding mold release properties for rubber manufacturing processes.
When applied to metal surfaces, Armeen 18D Pastilles forms a protective film that inhibits corrosion and also provides lubrication.
In addition, Armeen 18D Pastilles can be used as an emulsifier for waxes, pigments, and other hydrophobic materials.
Armeen 18D Pastilles has broad FDA approvals and can be used in applications that require food contact.
