APIs & Raw Materials


Diethylenetriamine (DETA) is used mainly as a building block for wet strength agents in the paper industry, in the chelating agent synthesis, and for detergents. In other applications DETA is used as an intermediate in corrosion inhibitors, polyamide resins, asphalt additives and epoxy hardener systems.

Diethylenetriamine (DETA) as member from the class of Ethyleneamines is used in a broad array of applications.
Diethylenetriamine is mainly used as building block for wet strength resins, in the synthesis for chelating agents, industrial surfactants and fabric softeners. Additional applications of Diethylenetriamine are in asphalt-additives, epoxy-systems, lube oil/fuel additives, polyamide resins and mineral processing aids.

  • For wet strength mainly for paper applications Diethylenetriamine (DETA) is converted with a dicarboxylic acid (for example Adipic Acid) into a polyaminoamide. The polyaminoamide is subsequently cross-linked with Epichlorohydrin.
  • Within the chemistry of metal komplexes Diethylenetriamine (DETA) is an import chelate. Diethylenetriamine (DETA) is converted with bromine acetic acid to DTPA (Diethylenetriaminepentaacetic acid).
  • Furthermore Diethylenetriamine is used as hardener for epoxy resins. It can react with Epoxy Resins, accelerated by phenols, acids and certain alcohols in such a way that a three-dimensional, cross-linked, infusible structure is formed.
  • In several additional applications Diethylenetriamine is used as building block for synthesis.
