Triisopropanolamine 99 (TIPA 99)
DOW Triisopropanolamine (TIPA) is a basic chemical used in many applications serving as
emulsifiers, stabilizers, chemical intermediates and neutralizers that achieve basicity,
buffering and alkalinity objectives.
Major applications include water-based coating applications and agricultural products.
Additional applications are antistat agents for polymers, corrosion inhibitor,
electrodeposition/electrocoating, lubricants, paper, pigment dispersion, plastics,
polyurethane additive, reaction intermediates, rubber curing, surfactants, mineral dispersion,
· Cross-linker in special niche water-based coating applications
· In waterborne coatings: good acid neutralization, improves water solubility, blocks
organic acids in water, improves package stability, reduces water-sensitivity and
· Neutralizes acidic herbicides and other acidic components.
· Good water solubility, freeze stability
