Huntsman Performance Products
Product Range Description
Accelerator 400 Accelerator 400 is used with epoxy hardeners to promote epoxy curing in amine systems. Accelerator 400 can be used with Huntsman JEFFAMINE® Polyetheramine range, but can also be used with most other amines.
Alkylalkanolamines Versatile, multi-functional molecules that combine the properties of amines and alcohols which can undergo reactions typical of both amines and alcohols, with the amine group usually exhibiting higher activity. Huntsman alkylalkanolamines primary applications include uses in the construction industry, such as cement additives.
Amines Used as accelerators, primarily in the construction industry in applications such as concrete and cement.
APMMEA and APMMEA-WB Huntsman APMMEA-WB and APMMEA amine neutralisers provide optimum pH, emulsion stability and enhanced pigment dispersion, have low viscosity and are essentially colourless.
Ethyleneamines Primarily used as reactive intermediates, due to their high reactivity they can form polymeric products, act as hydrophiles in surfactants, interact with metal ions and metal surfaces, be acid scavengers and be quarternised.
JEFFADD® MW Range of inherently low foaming amines which can be formulated into metal working fluids to provide pH buffering and a source of alkalinity
JEFFAMINE® Polyetheramines 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.
JEFFCAT® Catalysts JEFFCAT® catalysts are used for a wide range of urethane applications including manufacture of polyether and polyester foams, elastomers, coatings, urethane plastics and adhesives.
JEFFLINK® 136 Diamine Slower reaction amine chain extender for UV stable, aliphatic polyurea systems for coatings, adhesives and sealants used to replace traditional secondary aromatic diamines.
JEFFOX® 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
JEFFSOL® Carbonates JEFFSOL® carbonates can be used as “safe” and environmentally friendly solvents thus replacing hazardous and highly volatile solvents like methylene chloride, acetone and aromatic solvents.
Morpholine and DIGLYCOLAMINE® Agent 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.
Nonylphenol Nonylphenol is a viscous liquid, soluble in oil and organic solvents but insoluble in water. Predominantly acts as an accelerator for epoxy curing systems in CASE, also has applications in metalworking and lubricants.
SURFONIC® SM 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.
