The Crodacid DC range of bio-based azelaic acids is derived from natural plant sources and is ideal for use in high-demand and durable applications such as transportation, electronics, sportswear, textile and furniture laminates.

Highest purity to meet the most demanding applications

Crodacid DC 100% bio-based building blocks are used to manufacture high performing polyamide, polyester and polyurethane resins.

This range of high purity, low colour monomers is specifically designed for the preparation of high molecular weight polymers to enhance mechanical properties such as elongation and strength.

Crodacid DC monomers add performance benefits to these high molecular weight polymers such as:

  • Reduced moisture uptake, good hydrolytic stability
  • Lower melting point hence creating flexibility in processing
  • Better dye receptivity 
  • Good abrasion resistance
  • 100% renewable carbon content
and can therefore be used in high demanding applications such as nylon engineering plastics, polyamide hotmelt adhesives, polyester films and polyurethane elastomers.
