APIs & Raw Materials


1,2-Ethylenediamine (EDA) is used mainly as a building block for crop protection products, in the synthesis of chelating agents and for low-temperature-active bleaching agents. The many other applications of 1,2-ethylenediamine (EDA) include polyamides, lubricants, fuel additives and textiles.

EDA is used as a building block for the synthesis of bleach activators, chelates and crop protection products. Furthermore is is used as an intermediate in applications like corrosion inhibitors, polyamide resins and lubricants/fuel additives.   

Products derived from EDA are frequently used for bleach activators and chelates in detergents and for fungicides in crop protection area.

EDA is available as pure substance.
