AkzoNobel Surface Chemistry is the world's leading supplier of fatty amines and their derivatives. We offer primary, secondary and tertiary amines – cationic surfactants that are based on alkyl groups ranging from C8 to C22, with C12 to C18 chain lengths the most predominant.
Many applications are possible using these fatty-alkyl amine surfactants, and their uses include chemical intermediates, essential processing aids, and functional ingredients in many applications.
Quaternary amines are higher derivatives of the fatty amines. The fatty alkyl quaternary amines offer additional versatility to the formulation chemist. Quaternary amines maintain the properties of the fatty amines, as well as offering high levels of water solubility than the amines themselves.
