Tallow based fatty acids are fatty acids derived from animal fats and are typically used as a lubricity additive in products such as grease or lubricants. Another application includes the preparation of household cleaners and detergents as they can function as a thickening agent or humectant. Options for tallow based fatty acids include tallow fatty acid and hydrogenated tallow fatty acid as well triple pressed stearic acid, rubber stearic acid and more.View Details
Derived from plant sources, vegetable based fatty acids are often used in the household cleaning and metal polish industries, and they can act as a surfactant, opacifier or emulgent depending on application. Hardy Industrial Technologies produces vegetable based fatty acids including stearic acids with a range of purity as well as soy fatty acid. Product applications include carpet cleaners, detergents, plastics and more.View Details
Tropical Based Fatty Acids are available in liquid state and sourced from renewable and biodegradable materials. Applications include soaps and detergents, lubricants and products in the household, industrial and institutional industries as a lubricity additive, emulsifier, surfactant and more. Derived from natural components, tropical based fatty acids can be used as a raw material in biobased products.View Details
Hardy Industrial Technologies produces tallow based triglycerides for the lubricant and household cleaner industries as well as the biodiesel production industry as it is an economical source of fat as a raw material. HIT tallow based triglycerides include lard oil, choice white grease and hydrogenated tallow and are offered in liquid state with the option for hydrogenated tallow in prill state as well.View Details
Vegetable based triglycerides are an ester composed of glycerol and three fatty acids derived from plants. Hardy Industrial Technologies offers vegetable based triglycerides which can be used for lubricants, varnishes, lacquers, glazing compounds, printing inks and more. HIT produces technical, blown and fully hydrogenated soybean oil.View Details
Vegetable based methyl ester is produced from plant-based raw materials through transesterification of fats with methanol. Vegetable based methyl esters are commonly used as a solvent in the lithography ink, graphic arts and textile screen ink industries. If a methyl ester has been distilled, most impurities associated with typical biodiesel have been removed. HIT offers distilled methyl ester produced primarily from soy.View Details
Glycerin, also known as glycerol, is polyol compound formed from the alcohol fermentation of sugars. It is used across many industries as a humectant and plasticizer. Hardy Industrial Technologies produces glycerin that has a minimum content of 93% to 99.5% with yellow (crude) glycerin, technical glycerin and ASTM glycerin. Applications include glues, hard surface cleaners, freeze control and more.View Details
Hardy Industrial Technologies produces industrial wax synthesized from natural fats and oils. Industrial wax is often used in sealing and waterproofing compounds as well as in the lubricant and candle making industries. HIT industrial wax is natural and can be used as a raw material in biobased products.View Details
