Product Description
Eastman™ AAA, Water Wet (Acetoacetanilide) is a white powder that is soluble in styrenated resins; however, agitation for 1 to 2 hours may be required for complete solution at room temperature. It may be used as an intermediate in the production of organic yellow pigments. Tetrazonium salt compounds react with acetoacetanilide to form complex diazo pigments that are widely used as colorants. Eastman™ AAA is shipped in non-returnable 51 gallon fiber drums having a net weight of 200 LB.
