Berryman Chemical Triethanolamine 99%

Berryman Chemical Triethanolamine 99% is versatile due to its alcohol and amine properties. As an amine, TEA is mildly alkaline, forming salts or soaps when reacting with acids. As an alcohol, TEA can undergo esterification. It appears as a colorless to yellow, hygroscopic, viscous liquid with an ammonia-like odor.
