Step 3

Esterification with TOFA

Step 1 SAA-100 Soya Fatty Acid Xylene 1,000 533 150

These materials are stirred for 7 hours at 250°C under nitrogen with continuous removal of water and recycling of xylene. About 35 parts of water are obtained. The acid number of the TOFA polyester produced in this step is < 1.0 mg KOH/gm and the residual OH number is 70 mg KOH/gm. Esterification with MAN Step 2 TOFA Polyester Maleic Anhydride Butoxyethanol 1,000 98 250

The maleic anhydride/TOFA polyester mixture was stirred at 125°C for 4 hours followed by dilution with butoxyethanol. ARCOSOLV® PNP can also be used instead of butoxyethanol to give a HAPsfree formulation. The resulting maleinated polyester solution has a hydroxyl number of 10 mg KOH/gm and an acid value of 42 mg KOH/gm. Neutralization and Emulsification Step 3 Maleinated Polyester 30% Aqueous Ammonia Water Butoxyethanol 1,000 57 1,100 157

The maleinated TOFA polyester from step 2 is first neutralized with ammonium hydroxide at ambient temperature to pH 8-9. The resulting solution is then dispersed in a mixture of water and butoxyethanol. ARCOSOLV PNP can also be used instead of butoxyethanol to give a HAPs-free formulation.
