Isostearic acid is a branched, saturated acid which combines excellent oxidative stability with low pour points. This is ideal for applications that require both high and low temperature operation such as greases.
Our fatty acid range allows a formulator to choose bio stability or biodegradability. Dimer acid is biostable for improved in-service life, important in applications such as fuel additives; whereas oleic acid and isostearic acid are both readily biodegradable and therefore suitable for Environmentally Acceptable Lubricants (EALs), such as European Ecolabel complaint lubricants.
Being 100% biobased, the full range is appropriate for products that require high bio-based content, such as those meeting the USDA’s BioPreferred program.
