Tallow Amine

CAS No: 61790-33-8, 61788-45-2, 61791-26-2

Tallow is a hard fat consists chiefly of glyceryl esters of oleic, palmitic, and stearic acids (16-18 carbon chains). It is extracted from fatty deposits of animals. Amines derived from these fats are called tallow amines. They are hydrophilic surfactants with a weak ammonia smell. While immiscible in water, tallow amines are easily dissolved in chloroform, alcohols, ethers, and benzene. 

Tallow amines are widely used in mineral floating agent, waterproof softener of fiber, dyeing assistant, anti-static agent, pigment dispersant, anti-rusting agent, anti-caking agent of fertilizer, additives of lubricating oil, and germicide. They are also used for soaps, leather dressings, candles, food, and lubricants. They are used in producing synthetic surfactants. Tallow based alkyl amines are widely used in the synthesis of organic chemicals and cationic and amphoteric surfactants.

Silver Fern Chemical distributes distilled tallow amine and distilled hydrogenated tallow amine. We also carry a line of ethoxylated tallow amines under the name FernOx, detailed below.
