Product Focus: Dodecanedioic Acid (DDDA)

Dodecanedioic Acid (DDDA) is a dicarboxylic acid used in the manufacturing of nylon 6, 12, adhesives, powder coatings and paints. The global demand for DDDA is anticipated to grow due to it being a key raw material for the production of Nylon 6, 12 which has a wide range of applications including polyesters, greases, coatings, detergents, adhesives, and fragrances. In addition, DDDA is used in the production of corrosion inhibitors, which are extensively used for water treatment, pulp & paper, chemical facilities and other industrial facilities. The rise in protective coatings and paints containing zero volatile organic compounds has also contributed to the growth of the chemical. Recently manufacturers have been researching bio-based methods of manufacturing DDDA in order to meet the growing demand for eco-friendly products. The chemical is traditionally produced from butadiene but the exploration has allowed manufacturers to switch to a lower cost plant-oil sourced feedstock.
