Oleylamine with 2 mol EO is used as thickener for HCl and Phosphoric acid based systems.

Oleylamine 2 EO is a compound of non-ionic surfactant and cationic surfactant, which is used in thickening of strong acidic systems, such as toilet cleaner and rust remover

1. Excellent thickening effect on strong acid system
2. Small amount added, stable system after thickening
3. Simple use, add at room temperature, can obtain good thickening effect

1% - 2.5%

Production Process:

1. Add water into the pot first, and slowly add NP 10 (solubilizing essence, making the system more transparent and stable) after stirring, and add pigment after fully dissolved.
2. Slowly add thickener Oleylamine 2 EO under high-speed stirring, and the thickener will disperse into milky liquid in water.
3.Add hydrochloric acid, stir, the liquid slowly thicken and become transparent.
4. Add essence and stir until the product is transparent


NP 10 surfactant has been added to the thickener to improve the detergent's decontamination and spreadability. 
The product has a certain amount of foam to remove the greasy substances in the urine scale

Acid thickener thickens and increases the viscosity of a range of acid systems including phosphoric, sulfuric, hydrofluoric, citric, oxalic etc. It is a multifunctional material featuring effective thickening, wetting, corrosion inhibition and perfume solubilization. It is especially used in compositions such as toilet bowl cleaners, metal cleaners and brighteners, rust stain removers, denture cleansers, metal descalers, general hard surface cleaners, detergent, disinfectants and other cleaning agents.

Slightly combining a strong ionic salt such as sodium chloride with an acid thickener provides an adequate composition viscosity in the preferred concentration range of thickening agent as well as increases viscosity in many cases.

ATAMAN CHEMICALS offers a fast acting and reliable acid thickener with exceptional thickening properties.

Fatty amine ethyloxylates
Surface-active fatty amine ethoxylates are obtained by the action of ethylene oxide on fatty amine. 
The reaction can be represented in summary simplified form by the following general equation:

Fatty amine Ethylene oxide Fatty amine ethoxylate
x + y = n number of molecules of ethylene oxide added
When ethylene oxide is added to the fatty amines, dihydric alcohols with terminal hydroxyl groups are produced.
Under suitable conditions further reactions with these are possible. Moreover, the nitrogen can be quaternized.
Fatty amine ethoxylates are in principle basic in nature, they form salts with acids and have an alkaline reaction in aqueous solution. 
In view of their surface activity they must therefore be classified with the cationic compounds and, like them, they have affinity to fibres and surfaces.

Nevertheless, they often behave like nonionic surfactants towards many indicators and also in other applications, and all the more so the longer the added ethylene oxide chain is.
Their physical and chemical properties, and especially the surface-active ones, are determined largely by the ratio of the hydrophobic fatty amine radical to the hydrophilic solubilizing polyglycol chains in the molecule. 
The length of the polyglycol chains is indicated by the number of molecules of ethylene oxide added per molecule of fatty amine and is also known as degree of ethoxylation.

Since both the type of initial fatty amine and the amount of ethylene oxide can be chosen arbitrarily, there are two possibilities for modifying the hydrophilic/hydrophobic balance. 
Both have been employed in producing the Genamin product range. 
This consists of four groups, each of which is based on a different fatty amine and is distinguished by corresponding code letters:

C = Coconut fatty amine
saturated C8-C18 fatty amines, predominantly C12-C14

O = Oleylamine
predominantly unsaturated C18 fatty amines

S = Stearylamine
saturated C16-C18 fatty amines

T = Tallow fatty amine
saturated and unsaturated C16-C18 fatty amines

A multistage ethoxylation series is available for each of these amines, and the number of added molecules ofethylene oxide is expressed by an additional suffix, e.g. 080 for 8, 150 for 15 and 250 for 25 moles of ethylene oxide per molecule of fatty amine.
The last zero in all suffixes indicates that all grades contain practically 100 % active substance.
Common degrees of ethoxylation are Genamin grades with 2, 5, 8, 20 and 25 moles of ethylene oxide.

If for special purposes a narrower range is required, this can easily be achieved by formulating corresponding blends of neighbouring products. 
Sometimes, however, blends of more distant products produce even better effects. 
The procedure is to use the usual mixing rule and to employ the amine numbers as a basis for calculation.
Moreover, when entire production batches are taken, any degrees of ethoxylation can be produced.
To obtain completely homogeneous blends, it is preferable to employ temperatures of 50 – 60°C. 
It is recommended that this temperature should be also maintained when aqueous dilutions are produced. 
In certain concentration ranges (usually between 70 and 40 % active substance) the occurrence of gelatinous hydrates, which are slow to dissolve in cold water, is avoided.

In suitable cases the gel state can be eliminated by adding solubilizers (alcohols, glycols, etc.). 
These are also appropriate if stable, non-flammable, higher dilutions are to be produced from products that form a turbid solution.
In principle the solubility in water rises with increasing degree of ethoxylation. 
The slightly ethoxylated products are only moderately dispersible at room temperature and therefore form turbid solutions resembling emulsions. 
The medium and higher-ethoxylated products dissolve to form a clear solution.

On the other hand, the solubility in water decreases with rising temperature. 
Therefore turbidity can occasionally occur even in inherently clear solutions, for example if the recommended working temperature of 50 – 60°C is maintained when dilutions are prepared.

This is a reversible physical phenomenon that normally impairs neither further processing nor subsequent use. 
The solutions become clear again as they cool. 
Higher-ethoxylated compounds display no turbidity in aqueous solution up to boiling point. 
However, with these too the temperature limit is depressed to a greater or lesser extent by large quantities of electrolytes, especially neutral salts or alkalis.
