ETHOXYLATED FATTY AMINES
Environmental Fluids ethoxylated fatty amines (FNH Series) are produced by ethoxylating coco, tallow, di-tallow, and stearyl amines. The FNH Series ethoxylated fatty amines tend to have cationic properties at low ethoxylation degrees. As the polyoxyethylene chain increases the FNH series will take on nonionic surfactant properties and behave as excellent emulsifiers for a variety of chemical applications.
Environmental Fluids FNH Series materials are commonly used as solubilizers and emulsifiers in formulations to stabilize dispersions and antistat additives. In addition, the EF™ FNH Series materials are used in textile lubricants, dyeing auxiliaries, friction modifying additives, insecticide and herbicide formulations, degreasing additives, and various cleaning and detergent formulations for contributing antistatic properties. The EF™ FNH Series nonionic surfactants range in the degree of ethoxylation from 2–20 moles of ethylene oxide (EO). Additional molecular weights are available upon review.
