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.
