Oleochemicals, usually residual products of vegetable oils and fats, are used in a wide variety of applications, from paints and greases to body care preparations and food products. Moreover, because they are non-toxic, oleochemicals are well suited for use in the production of plastics to be made into food contact applications.
End-use applications require a specific balance of properties and NofaLab offers a range of basic analyses to ensure that each batch of oleochemicals is fit for its designated purpose.
