In high-quality asphalt products (such as airport runways, highways and other engineering asphalt), adding Vanconol® amine TOH can enhance asphalt adhesion with sand, gravel and ash, which can be dissolved in asphalt or sprayed on the aggregate surface. Such treated bitumen shows excellent adhesion to wet surfaces (metal, concrete surfaces) and such bitumen surfaces can also provide properties of resisting flood, acid rain and corrosion.
Amines have found several applications in rubber processing for which the Vanconol® amine TOH and their salts may be suited. Derivatives have been made for use as retarders for fast curing butyl rubbers to reduce scorching, as curing accelerators in other rubbers, in acid emulsion polymerization, and as softening and plasticizing agents.
The neutralized salt or quaternized product of Vanconol® amine TOH are widely used as antistatic agent.
These imidazoline derivatives will form a layer of continuous conducting film on the surface of fiber and
plastic which timely derives static fricative in the producing process of fiber or plastic.
Vanconol® amine TOH is suggested for use in removing traces of silica from gypsum intended for use in glass ceramics, and for removing silica from low grade iron ores. The hydrochloride of Vanconol® amine TOH has been successfully for separating silica and iron oxide from barite.
Use of Vanconol® amine TOH into paint is known to improve adhesion of paint even to wet surfaces, meanwhile, improving water proof of paint.
In the prodution of water-based paints, Vanconol® amine TOH often shows good dispersion stability due to its strong adsorption on the pigment surface and the ability to form mutually exclusive micelles. Based on this characteristic, Vanconol® amine TOH is used as a dispersant for aqueous industrial coatings, pastes and inks.
