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
Diethanolamide of Coconut Oil
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.
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.
Personal Care: Foam Booster and Viscosity Builder in Shampoos etc.
Household Cleaning: Foam Stabiliser and Viscosity Builder in Dish-washing
Textiles: Dyeing Assistant.
Readily Biodegradable means that it will have a low environmental
Provides lubricity and corrosion inhibition properties in formulations.
Excellent coupling agent can be very useful in formulations that contain
