Triethanolamine (TEA)

A and B grades are produced by ammonia ethoxylation, "Light" grade - by ethoxylation of pure monoethanolamine (MEA), and OD grade - by diethanolamine (DEA) ethoxylation. Is a component of softening agents for synthetic rubbers and also used for cooling liquids, perfumes and cosmetics. Salts of thriethanolamine (TEA) and higher fatty acids are used as cleaning agents, emulsifiers, wetting agents and oil agents. Is also applied as adsorbent for sour gases, corrosion inhibitor, auxiliary material for cement production and in pharmaceutical industry.
