EMEROX® Azelaic Acid: The Preferred Alternative to Sebacic Acid

CINCINNATI, OH (Feb. 15, 2017) – Emery Oleochemicals, a global specialty chemical manufacturer, announces its EMEROX® Azelaic Acid as an alternative to sebacic acid.

EMEROX® Azelaic Acid can be used as an intermediate reactant or directly in formulated products. It is the preferred choice for a broad range of applications including:

  • low temperature and polymeric plasticizers,
  • nylon and fibers,
  • polyamide hot melts,
  • polyester films and adhesives,
  • urethane elastomers,
  • ester-based synthetic lubricants,
  • lithium complex greases, and
  • corrosion inhibitors for water-based metalworking fluids and engine coolants.

Emery Oleochemicals offers various grades of EMEROX® Azelaic Acid which provide the following benefits to end-product formulators relative to sebacic acid:

  • lower melting point which reduces processing time and cost,
  • excellent flexibility,
  • improved polymer low-temperature impact strength without sacrificing high temperature performance,
  • excellent hydrolysis resistance,
  • low water absorption,
  • high impact resistance,
  • improved solubility characteristics,
  • lower pour point of esters which improves cold temperature flow, and
  • lower molecular weight which produces more ester per pound of acid.

With manufacturing facilities in North America, Europe and Asia, Emery Oleochemicals is backward-integrated, ensuring security of supply for EMEROX® Azelaic Acid. Emery offers a sustainable solution with its use of renewable raw materials as feedstock and green chemistries. Emery Oleochemicals as the largest global producer of azelaic acid is committed to being your preferred partner for EMEROX® Azelaic Acid which is an effective alternative to sebacic acid and to adipic acid.
