Tallow Amine Market: Introduction
Tallow amines represents the wide range of non-ionic surfactants derived from animal fats i.e. tallow. Tallow is a hard fat is comprised of glyceryl esters of oleic, palmitic, and stearic acids. Tallow amines are hydrophilic surfactants with a weak ammonia smell. Tallow amines are immiscible in water, and are easily dissolved in alcohols, chloroforms, benzene, and ethers. Animal fats are hydrolyzed to give mixture of fatty acids mainly comprised of palmitic, oleic, linoleic and myristic. These fatty acids are converted into amines by nitrile process. Tallow amine is finding various applications in numerous industries. Tallow amines are widely used as cationic collector in mining industry, as an emulsifier and wetting agent in agrochemicals formulation. Tallow amines are also used as additives in fuel and lubricants. They are used as an additives in fuel & lubricants as well as dyes & pigments. Tallow amines are also used as corrosion inhibitors and thickeners for many industrial applications. Tallow amines are also finding its application is soaps formulation and leather dressing. In certain regions and countries such as France, there are regulations and bans being imposed on the tallow amine due to the uncertain health risks.
