TamiSolve CB tends to decompose slowly upon storage and when heated, resulting in release of trimethylamine and discoloration of the liquid. Eastman developed a stabilizer to cope with these unwanted effects. The stabilizer is based on high boiling organic compounds, avoiding the introduction of mineral anionic components.
TamiSolve CB is a 45% aqueous solution.
TamiSolve CB can be used as cleaning and degreasing agent in the metal industry. Removal of grease from carbodies, before phosphatation and application of the CED – coating, is a typical example.
TamiSolve CB can be used for neutralization purposes.
TamiSolve CB can be used in paint stripping formulations.
TamiSolve CB can be used as a corrosion inhibitor.
TamiSolve CB can be used for the synthesis of choline salts.
Formation of salts, saponificationTamiSolve® CB will react with all acids, resulting in the production of the corresponding salt.
TamiSolve® CB can be used for the saponification of esters, like vegetable oils and greases, ester based photomasks, …
StabilityTamiSolve® CB decomposes in the absence of amines. The decomposition is accelerated by heat. During decomposition trimethylamine is formed, as a result the product will have a fishy odor. Aldehydes which are formed during the decomposition will result in discolorisation.
TamiSolve CB is a corrosive liquid. Wear suitable protective clothing, gloves and goggles when handling the product.
