Description: Triisopropanolamine is a colorless to yellow liquid that is almost odorless. It is fully soluble in water.
Synonyms: TRIPA, 1,1’,1”-Nitrilotri-2-propanol, Tri-2-propanolamine, Tri-iso-propanolamine, Tris(2-propanol)amine, Tris(2-Hydroxypropyl)amine
Applications: Intermediate used in the production of Lubrification oils, Textile industry, Leather industry and Additive for cement.
Test for using Calcium Nitrate and Triisopropanolamine together:
The effect of using some admixtures such as calcium nitrate and triisopropanolamine on the setting and hardening process of cement pastes at 20°C temperature.
Calcium nitrate alone acts as a setting accelerator, but has relatively little beneficial effect on the long term period development of mechanical resistances. Regardless of the cement type used, triisopropanolamine used alone performed well as a hardening accelerator at all ages. The combined addition of calcium nitrate and triisopropanolamine produced at very early age significant and promising results with respect to both setting and hardening acceleration. Continuous compressive strength increase was observed with time.
