Oleochemicals

We have a long standing history within the chemical industry and have been supplying naturally derived chemicals for over 80 years. Our range of oleochemicals are derived from natural, renewable and sustainable sources.

Due to the nature of these products they can be used across a large number of different industries, helping to reduce their reliance on petrochemically derived products and so the impact on the environment. The portfolio includes:

• distilled and partly hardened fatty acids
• polymerised fatty acids
• oleic acids, isostearic acid 
• stearic fatty acids
• glycerine

Fatty acids & base oleochemicals

Our fatty acids have a wide range of applications in consumer and industrial markets. These chemicals play a large role in helping to improve environmental sustainability due to being sourced from plant and animal fats.  

The fatty acid and base oleochemicals that we offer are listed below. They are generally liquids or soft solids designed for various applications and contain a mixed composition of acids reflecting the parent oil or fat.

 

Our recommendations

Our distilled fatty acids are important raw materials for the production of soaps, detergents, surfactants and lubricants, as well as providing the source raw materials for oleines, stearines, dimer acids, fractionated fatty acids and others. In the production of soaps and detergents, blends of distilled fatty acids are used to optimise properties such as lather generation (quality and quantity), dissolution rate and viscosity. Polyunsaturated fatty acids, derived from soft oils such as sunflower and soya, react with air to form a film or coating; for this reason, they are used in the production of paints, inks, and special surface cleaning soaps.
