Chemtex 901 Series (Imidazoline): Effective Corrosion Inhibitor, Emulsifying Agent, Flocculant

Chemtex 901 Imidazoline series are thermally stable, organic, nitrogenous bases that form the basic constituent of corrosion inhibitors for use in oil and gas industries. These properties make Imidazolines one of the key intermediates for a variety of industrial applications. Imidazoline, an effective organic corrosion inhibitor used in acidic and aggressive environment, can form an adsorption film on the surface of metal, slowing down the diffusion of ions and inhibiting the occurrence of metal corrosion.

Imidazoline chemistry is the basis for one of the dominating types of film-forming organic corrosion inhibitors for oil and gas installations globally.

Chemtex 901 Series meet extreme corrosion challenges for low and middle range temperature oil and gas extraction sites, downhole operations. Depending on the conditions, operating limitations and specific applications, Imidazoline can be formulated as oil soluble, oil soluble/water dispersible or water soluble/oil dispersible.
