Tall Oil Fatty Acid (TOFA)

Forchem’s Tall Oil Fatty Acid (TOFA) reflects our combination of high quality Scandinavian type Crude Tall Oil (CTO) raw material together with Europe’s most modern and efficient Tall Oil bio-refinery in Rauma, Finland.

The optimum distillation process produces a very pure fatty acid with a low level of rosin acids and a low level of unsaponifiables, which make it an ideal raw material for many chemical reactions and intermediates.

For those applications where low temperature performance is critical Forchem produces a premium quality grade of TOFA, For 2X. This is produced from specially selected CTO and is subjected to even greater quality control to ensure maximum product performance and stability.

Forchem's classic TOFA-products


Forchem tuotemerkit TOFA-01Forchem tuotemerkit TOFA-04for2 and for2x are characterized as a tall oil fatty acid (TOFA) with high fatty acid content  and low content of rosin acids and unsaponifiables. The light colour together with excellent colour stability and air drying properties are derived from its origin, the northern pine. The same reason gives for2x good cold performance properties.

The superior chemical reactivity of for2 is due to its long carbon chain (C18), the acid function of carboxyl group (-COOH) and the unsaturation of the double bonds. That is why for2 is an excellent raw material for alkyd resins, dimer acids, fa-esters, fa-soaps, fa-ethoxylates, fa-amines and many other chemicals.
