SIZING PERFORMANCE AND HYDROLYSIS RESISTANCE OF ALKYL OLEATE SUCCINIC ANHYDRIDES
APPLICATION: With a long useful life in the emulsion form, ethyl oleate succinic anhydride could become one of the preferred sizing chemicals in papermaking.
Q: I recently learned about a commercially available product called alkenyl succinic anhydrides (ASA's).
Other applications for MA include agricultural chemicals, malic acid, fumaric acid, lube oil additives, alkenyl succinic anhydrides, reactive plasticizers, sulfosuccinic acid esters, and a number of other chemicals.
