VICAMID 825 Oleyl diethanolamide 5% free DEA

Product Description

Vicamid 825™ is a fatty amide nonionic surfactant derived from natural oils that provides anti-corrosive and good lubricity properties.


Oleyl Diethanolamide, Oleic DEA


Oleyl Diethanolamide


VICAMID 825™ is a rich golden, highly viscous oily surfactant with a bland odour. It forms thick aqueous dispersions in water which may exhibit stable foams.

Product Performance

VICAMID 825TM is a fatty amide nonionic surfactant produced from the reaction of Canola Oil with Diethanolamine which will contain some glycerine and glycerides as well as about 4% free DEA. When formulated in aqueous products Vicamid 825TM will provide anti-corrosive and good lubricity properties. Oleyl diethanolamides are known to be good coupling agents in aqueous formulations or microemulsions containing a variety of otherwise incompatible materials. Viscosity modifier and foam stabiliser and booster.
