World Dimer Acid Market

Date: 2016-08

Dimer acids, also known as dimerized fatty acids, belong to the class of dicarboxylic acids, obtained by dimerizing unsaturated fatty acids. Dimer acids are non-toxic and have yellow viscous transparent appearance. Dimer acids are predominantly used to make polyamide resins and hot melt adhesives. Based on properties, dimer acid-based polyamide resins can be classified as either reactive or non-reactive. Reactive polyamides act as curing agents for epoxy resins, which are used to manufacture adhesives and surface coatings. Whereas, non-reactive polyamides are largely used to manufacture printing inks and hot-melt adhesives. In addition, dimer acid-based polyamide resins are widely used as fuel oil additives, and lubricants in alkyd resins, adhesives, and surfactants.
