AEPD brand of 2-amino-2-ethyl-1,3-propanediol is manufactured by ANGUS Chemical Company. This aminodiol has a wide variety of end uses including dispersions, emulsification, formaldehyde scavenging, and synthesis.
AEPD™ 85 is a multifunctional amino alcohol for metalworking fluids comprised of 85% aminoethyl propanediol in a 15% aqueous solution. AEPD 85 has an intermediate base strength (pKa 8.8) and provides a good balance of pH development and reserve alkalinity properties. AEPD 85 has been shown to provide enhanced microbial control in fluids formulated with triazine-based biocides. It also offers a favorable environmental profile, improved foaming performance and reduced cobalt leaching when compared with alternative chemistries.
Tegopren® 5847 is a 100% active, non-ionic polyether siloxane. Apart from its extraordinary reduction of surface tension in aqueous solutions, the main property of Tegopren 5847 is super spreading. The use of small amounts of Tegopren 5847 reduces the surface tension of water-based systems and enhances the spreading on non-polar surfaces.
Tomakleen™ G-14 is an additive designed for improved cleaning performance while reducing or eliminating the need for oxygenated solvents. It is readily biodegradable and is not considered a VOC under CARB 310.
