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.
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.
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.
