Explore the uses, components, and industrial applications of Monoethylene Glycol (MEG) with Third Coast Chemicals.

Monoethanolamine (MEA)

Monoethanolamine (MEA) is a versatile ethanolamine, vital in multiple industries for its varied applications. This colorless liquid, known for its mild ammonia odor, plays a pivotal role in sweetening natural and coal gas. It serves as a key component in heavy-duty detergents, acting as soap or amides. MEA finds use as a feedstock in the production of ethylene amines, pharmaceutical formulations, cosmetics as a pH regulator, and more. It also acts as a softening agent for hides, a dispersing agent for agricultural chemicals, and is used in polishes, and the synthesis of surface-active agents.

MEA Can Be Used In Many Industries Such As
  • Agrochemicals
  • Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants & Elastomers
  • Energy, Oil & Gas Industry
  • Homecare & Industrial Cleaning Industry
  • Health & Beauty Industry
  • Lubricants & Metal Working Fluids
  • Textile Industry
  • Water Treatment
  • Wood Treating
Diethylene Glycol (DEG) with Third Coast Chemicals.

Diethanolamine (DEA)

Diethanolamine (DEA) is a unique compound possessing both alcohol and amine characteristics. Widely utilized across various industries, DEA serves as a building block for triazine-based corrosion inhibitors, as a key anti-redeposition agent in laundry detergents, personal care products, urethane foams, and plays a crucial role in the manufacturing of diverse amine compounds. DEA is also crucial for acid neutralization and soil deposition.

DEA Can Be Used In Many Industries Such As
  • Agrochemicals
  • Coatings, Adhesives, Sealants & Elastomers
  • Energy, Oil & Gas
  • Homecare & Industrial Cleaning
  • Health & Beauty
  • Lubricants & Metal Working Fluids
manufacturing of cement grinding aids

Triethanolamine (TEA)

Triethanolamine (TEA) is a colorless to yellow liquid, completely soluble in water, with an ammonia-like smell. TEA is a bifunctional compound, exhibiting properties of both alcohols and amines. Serving as a building block for triazine-based corrosion inhibitors, TEA is commonly used as a metalworking fluid and is found in oils, fuels, paints, inks, cement, and more. TEA acts as a pH adjuster in skin and hair conditioning products, fragrances, sunscreens, liquid laundry detergents, polishes, and paints, and serves as an intermediate in the production of various other products. Triethanolamine is a coating ingredient for fresh fruit and vegetables and is widely used in surfactants and as a dispersing ingredient and detergent in hand and body lotions, shaving creams, soaps, shampoos, and bath powders.

TEA Can Be Used In Many Industries Such As
  • Agrochemicals
  • Cutting & Metalworking
  • Energy, Oil & Gas
  • Fabric, textile, and leather products
  • Food Industry
  • Homecare & Industrial Cleaning
  • Health, Beauty, Cosmetics & Pharmaceuticals
  • Paints and Inks
  • Sealants & Elastomers
  • Urethane Foams, Foam Seating & Bedding
