The Industrial division of Alfa Chemicals can help you select the best speciality chemical additives for your development projects in the UK, Ireland and Nordic regions.
Versatile, multi-functional molecules, usually exhibiting higher activity than amines and alcohols. The alkanolamines and their aqueous solutions will absorb carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide at lower temperatures and release the acid gases at higher temperatures. This forms the basis for processes which separate carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfide from gas streams.
N-aminopropylmorpholine (APM) is a highly reactive, low viscosity amine that can be used as reactive diluent in epoxy products e.g. coatings and adhesives, depending on the functionality as a chain extender or cross-linking agent in resins and as an accelerator for slower curing amine containing systems.
JEFFAMINE® Polyetheramines are an extremely versatile product range used primarily in epoxy systems. Mainly used to increase flexibility, toughness, hydrophilicity or hydrophobicity (depending on the product used), they also offer various reactivities, good temperature stabilities, are essentially colourless and have a low viscosity.
JEFFOX® range are primarily used as an effective water soluble defoamer for concrete, also in metalworking applications as an excellent lubricant under high pressure suitable for formulating into metalworking fluids. JEFFOX® can be used as a lubricant on its own or as an additive in water-based metalworking fluids.
Nonionic, polymeric dispersants for aqueous pigment concentrates. JEFFSPERE® contain pigment affinic groups that provide strong, cohesive adsorption onto the pigment surface, and water-compatible chains which provide steric stabilisation following adsorption onto the pigment surface.
Used in the CASE, Metalworking and Homecare markets as an emulsifier and wetting agent; Morpholine also acts as an excellent corrosion inhibitor, especially in steam boiler systems. Has applications within water treatment as it is miscible with water as well as a large range of other organic solvents. DIGLYCOLAMINE® Agent is a 2-(2-aminoethoxy) ethanol which is used as a foam stabilizer, wetter, emulsifier and an amide in metalworking, personal care and electronics.
SURFONIC® SM sodium sulfonates can provide excellent emulsification and corrosion inhibition properties in industrial lubricant formulations such as metalworking fluids and hydraulic fluids. SURFONIC® SM are available across a range of molecular weights and are compatible with a wide range of mineral oils and synthetic base lubricants.
