Dimer acids, often referred to as dimerized fatty acids, are a class of dicarboxylic acids that are synthesized by clay catalyzed oligomerization of unsaturated fatty acids. The fatty acids involved in reaction are obtained from natural sources such as tall oil, soybean oil and rapeseed oil among others. Dimer acids are used in the production of non-reactive polyamides used in hot melt adhesives and flexographic printing inks among other applications.
Dimer acids enhance the level of corrosion resistance, hydrophobicity and heat & light stability of the final product. Also, use of dimer acid results in a final product with a relatively lower Tg (glass transition temperature). When used in printing inks, dimer acids tend to provide relatively higher gloss and enhanced substrate adherence to the inks.
