At Oleum, we create chemistry for a sustainable future. We are committed to providing forward-thinking solutions to the environmental and macroeconomic issues faced by a wide range of Australian industries.
BASF Amines are found in a range of products used as starting materials for coatings, plastics, and pharmaceuticals. They also supply acids used in detergents and crop protectants. BASF’s innovative intermediates help to improve both the properties of final products and production processes.
Oleum provides a full range of raw materials including Monoethanolamine (MEA), Diethanolamine (DEA), and Triethanolamine(TEA) which are key ingredients in many household cleaning products. Our products are used in a wide range of applications including the manufacturing of plastics, adhesives, rubber, and coatings.
- Monoethanolamine (MEA) belongs to the class of ethanolamines, with both a primary amine and hydroxyl functionality. It is used as a building block, a pH-control agent in the formulation of packaging and printing inks, as well as a dilution agent.
- Diethanolamine (DEA) is an organic compound made up of two amine groups and one alcohol group. It is used as a building block, to neutralise pH levels in skincare formulas, and dilute products so that they can be spread across larger surface areas.
- Triethanolamine (TEA) is used as a neutralisation agent for anionic stabilised waterborne resins (polyesters, alkyds, acrylic resins, and polyurethanes containing carboxyl or other acidic groups). As a catalyst, it is used in the curing of epoxy and polyurethane systems.
