      Long Chain Alkenyl Succinic Acids for Coatings, Toners, Inks, Textiles,    

                   Encapsulants, and Chemical Intermediate Applications

A new line of long chain alkenyl succinic acid products is disclosed herein.  These waxes are produced via reactions to yield products with long hydrocarbon chains coupled to succinic acid.  The products are available ranging from liquids to hard solids.  The amount of succinic acid functionality can be varied from none up to about 150 mg KOH / gram.

The products disclosed herein have the following application benefits:

·                As pigment dispersants for organic or inorganic pigments.  The new alkenyl succinic acids can be used to improve the dispersion of pigments into coatings.  The succinic acid functionality combined with low viscosity helps wet the pigments and enable better color development and improved loading. The new alkenyl succinic acids can be used at levels up to 35% by weight on the pigment.

·                As dispersants for inorganic particles such as silica or talc.  The new alkenyl succinic acids can be used to improve the dispersion of inorganic particles into coatings.  The succinic acid functionality combined with low viscosity helps wet the inorganic particles and enable better stability and improved loading. The new alkenyl succinic acids can be used at levels up to 10% by weight on the inorganic particles.

·                As additives for architectural coatings.  The new alkenyl succinic acids can be used to improve the stability with pigments, resins, and other architectural coating ingredients.  The new products can also be used to improve the water resistance, and modify the surface of the coating after applied.  The new alkenyl succinic acids can be used at levels up to 5% by weight in the coating formulation.

·                As additives for powder coatings.  The low viscosity of the new alkenyl succinic acids can be used to improve the melt flow of the powder coating during the curing process.   After curing, the new alkenyl succinic acids can alter the surface appearance by migrating to the surface to provide a matte finish.  The succinic acid functionality can improve the stability with pigments, resins, and other powder coating ingredients.  The new alkenyl succinic acids can be used at levels up to 5% by weight in the coating formulation.

·                As pigment dispersants for organic or inorganic pigments.  The new alkenyl succinic acids can be used to improve the dispersion of pigments into toners.  The succinic acid functionality helps wet the pigments and enable better color development and the low viscosity helps allow improved loading. The new alkenyl succinic acids can be used at levels up to 35% by weight on the pigment.

·                As a compatibilizer for wax in toner resin.  The new alkenyl succinic acids can be used to improve the compatibility of non-functional waxes such as paraffins, microcrystalline, Fischer Tropsch paraffins, and polyethylenes into toner resi...
