Henkel Corp. recently introduced Emersol® 873 isostearic acid, which, according to the company,
provides higher quality and greater derivative yields at lower cost than similar products.
Emersol 873 is a new, technical grade isostearic acid based on vegetable feedstock.
Performance improvements of vegetable-derived isostearic acids include their light color and low
odor. Liquid form provides greater ease of use in chemical formulations for a broad range of
industrial products and consumer products, including lubricants, metalworking fluids, corrosion
protection applications, textile spinning lubricants and two- cycle engine oils.
Isostearic acids also provide outstanding mildness, skin feel and no residual greasiness.
