VICAMID 528 Coconut diethanolamide 8% free DEA

Product Description

Vicamid 528™ is a fatty amide nonionic surfactant derived from natural oils that provides anti-corrosive and good lubricity properties.

COMMON AND OTHER NAMES

Coco Diethanolamide, Coco DEA

CHEMICAL COMPOSITION

Diethanolamide of Coconut Oil

CHARACTERISTICS

VICAMID 528™ is a rich golden,highly viscous oily surfactant with a bland odour. It forms thick aqueous dispersions in water which may exhibit stable foams.

Product Performance

VICAMID 528TM is a fatty amide nonionic surfactant produced from the reaction of Coconut Oil with Diethanolamine which will contain some glycerine and glycerides as well as about 8% free DEA. When formulated in aqueous products Vicamid 528TM will provide anti-corrosive and good lubricity properties. Coconut diethanolamides are known to be good coupling agents in aqueous formulations or microemulsions containing a variety of otherwise incompatible materials. They are also used as viscosity modifiers and foam boosters.
