Fatty Acid Amides are chemical compounds containing long-chain fatty acid and an amide group in the structure. These compounds are predominantly used as lubricants mainly in the polymer industry. These are solid lubricants that are found to be chemically and thermally stable. The fluctuating raw material prices affect the prices of fatty acid amides to a great extent. For instance, erucic acid rapeseed (HEAR) oil is key raw material for erucamide, and it needs to be grown with a proper 2-year planning cycle. This also exposes it to vulnerable climate conditions.
Fatty Acid Amides have strong demand in the plastic industry for its use as a superior additive and processing aid. It is used as both internal & external lubricant. Internal lubricant application includes torque reduction in rubber and resin processing whereas, the external lubricating application includes promoting slip to resin surfaces and enhance the fluidity of power materials. Its use as anti-blocking is predominant in pellets, resin powder, ink and film processing.
