DIPA is a white, crystalline solid with a boiling point of 248.7°C; used as an emulsifying agent for polishes, insecticides, and water paints.
DIPA is a basic chemical used in many applications serving as emulsifiers, stabilizers, chemical intermediates and neutralizers that achieve basicity, buffering and alkalinity objectives. Because DIPA is a good solubilizer of oil and fat, it is frequently used to neutralize fatty acids and sulfonic acid-based surfactants.
Major application includes personal care, metalworking products and gas treating. DIPA is also used in coatings, pesticides, paint strippers, paper, photographic intermediates, plastic, polyurethane additives, reaction intermediates, surfactants, textile and urethanes. Damini Corporation Sdn Bhd has collaborated with the largest DIPA producer in the world in order to cater to the Malaysian and regional markets respectively.
