Product description

Pamolyn™ 347 fatty acid is a conjugated linoleic acid and oleic acid rich blend. The conjugated linoleic acid is produced synthetically by an Eastman process that isomerizes 9, 12-nonconjugated linoleic acid to the 9, 11- and 10, 12-conjugated forms, and controls the ratio of cis-trans to trans-trans isomers. Outstanding for low odor, pale color, and color stability, Pamolyn™ 347 fatty acid contains 38 to 44% conjugated diene fatty acids which makes it more reactive when compared with natural linoleic acids of similar linoleic content. Fast bodying of protective coating resins and excellent surface and through dry of their films are noted. Uses include production of epoxy resin esters; modifiers of styrenated and other alkyds; chemical intermediates for reactions involving conjugated unsaturation; and applications wherever dehydrated castor oil and/or fatty acids are used.
