Versatic™ Acid 10

Versatic™ Acid 10, known chemically as neodecanoic acid, is a versatile, multi-functional saturated carboxylic acid, useful in a variety of applications due to its unique structure. Versatic acid 10 is used widely in metalworking fluids, and as a corrosion inhibitor in other aqueous recirculating systems. Salts of Versatic Acid 10 are also used in paint driers, PVC stabilizers, wood preservatives, metal extraction agents, and to improve the adhesion between rubber and the brass plating on steel belts in tires. Versatic Acid 10 has replaced naphthenic acid in many applications.
