Versatic™ Acids

Versatic logo

Versatic Acids are key intermediates in the manufacture of products that require excellent hydrolytic stability, heat resistance and resistance to attack from a wide variety of chemical agents. They have excellent solubility in nonpolar compounds such as organic polymers and plastics allowing them to be utilized in a wide variety of systems. 

 

These properties originate from the highly branched alkyl groups that contain a tertiary alpha-carbon atom. The improved performance is especially demonstrated in comparison with other linear and secondary acids. Versatic Acids are used in a wide range of applications in their original form, as an acid chloride or metal salt derivative.
