Tall Oil Fatty Acid (TOFA)
Tall Oil Fatty Acid (TOFA) CAS# 61790-12-3, also known as “liquid rosin” or tallol, is a low cost, viscous yellow-black odorous liquid chemical compound that is a product of crude tall oil vacuum distillation. It is a member of the product family Oleic Acid. Tall oil fatty acids are sold in markets that use them in raw form and as precursors to synthesize an array of products. TOFA derivatives include dimers, alkyds, PVC stabilizers, synthetic lubricant polyamides, and a variety of oilfield chemicals.
Low sulfur tall oil fatty acid (TOFA) is designed specifically for the fuel segment as a diesel fuel additive. Tall oil fatty acids is obtained by the fractional distillation of crude oil, a by-product from the pulping of pine trees.
Tall oil fatty acids are used in dimer acids, alkyd resins, oilfield chemicals, metalworking fluids, liquid cleaners, textile chemicals, fuel additives, construction chemicals, rubber and tire, metallic stabilizers, ore flotation, and fatty derivatives.
TOFA is typically sold in liquid bulk, but is also available in totes (IBC tanks), and drums. Special packaging is available on request.
