Chemical name: N,N-Dimethylethanolamine
CAS number: 108-01-0
AminCat DMEA catalyst (N,N-Dimethylethanolamine) contains both a tertiary amine group and a hydroxyl group, and therefore it undergoes typical reactions of both amines and alcohols. It strongly catalyses the water-isocyanate reaction in the production of polyurethane foam. Its hydroxyl group can react with the isocyanate, thereby chemically bonding the AminCat DMEA catalyst molecule to the polyurethane polymer. As a result, residual amine odour in the finished foam product is minimized.
Europe and United States: Provided AminCat DMEA is on stock in our local warehouses our lead time is about one week if delivered in 170 KG steel drums.
Canada, South America, South Africa and other markets can also be served, please contact our sales department for more details.
