PMC Biogenix has been the pioneer in the development and manufacture of fatty amides worldwide. Our proprietary technology has expanded over 50 years to give us today’s leading market position. Our Kemamide® and Armoslip® fatty amide products provide a broad selection of plastics additives, wax additives and lubricants to a wide range of applications. Our commitment to consistent and reliable supply of high quality fatty amides to our customer base is demonstrated by our strong and secure sourcing of critical, unique, and natural raw material and our truly global manufacturing footprint with manufacturing sites in North America and Asia.

Armoslip® and Kemamide® slip agents and anti-block additives add a lubricating layer and provide excellent bloom control and secondary mold-release in polyolefins and engineering polymers. These products provide lubricity, chemical and thermal stability and melting ranges that find useful applications to solve a variety of technical challenges.

The Armoslip® product line includes various grades of primary amides, including erucamide, oleamide and stearamide versions. Kemamide® products include primary fatty amides, secondary fatty amides, and fatty bisamides.

Primary amides find their primary applications in polyolefins as slip and anti-block agents but are also useful in other polymers such as rigid polyvinyl chloride as an external lubricant, vinyl plastisol cap liners to reduce the torque required for cap removal and coatings as a slip and anti-mar additive.

Secondary amides are primarily used in applications where superior temperature stability is required. Applications include mold flow improvement in nylon and lubrication in acrylics and polycarbonates. These products may be specifically tailored for specialty applications that require high lubricity and good thermal stability. Secondary amides may also be used in non-polymer applications, where a higher performance wax replacement is needed for demanding applications.

Fatty bisamides are used as lubricants in polymer applications, powder coatings, defoamers and flow modifiers in asphalt applications. As a fully integrated manufacturer, we can modify the chemical properties to impart variations in chain length, acid value and total amine value. Modification of these parameters can improve performance in a variety of applications.
