Long Chain Dicarboxylic Acids are manufactured from paraffin oil or plant derived oils through a biotechnological fermentation process. They are highly purified by the use of latest technology.
Dicarboxylic Acids contain two acid moieties and have the generic structural formula of HOOC-(CH2)n-COOH. Long Chain Dicarboxylic Acids are all diacids whose total amount or carbon atoms is greater than nine (>9). Due to their physical characteristics dicarboxylic acids are especially useful for the production of high-performance polymers (polyester, polyamides), anti-corrosives, lubricants, adhesives, various coatings and many more.
