Varine® O

Varine® O is an oleyl imidazoline. The product was developed as a corrosion inhibitor for greases, rust preventives and industrial lubricants. In the salt form, Varine O becomes cationic and is attracted to negatively charged substrates.

Varine O and its salt can be used to penetrate oils, in antistatic formulations, in textile and dyes, as a corrosion inhibitor, to reduce feathering in inks, and in petroleum production.

The main product benefits are:

  • Readily soluble in polar solvents and hydrocarbons
  • Excellent foamer, with increased activity when made more acidic
  • Improves wetting in acidic detergents
  • Varine O salt is soluble in polar organic solvents
