AdvanSix Diallylamine (DALA)

AdvanSix Diallylamine (DALA) is a colorless to yellow, flammable, and corrosive liquid that emits a pungent, ammonia-like odor. While it is soluble in ethanol, benzene, and ethyl acetate, it displays limited solubility in water. Under recommended storage conditions, DALA remains stable. This versatile chemical compound is commonly harnessed in the production of pharmaceuticals, resins, and paper. It serves as a crucial raw material for manufacturing various crop protection products. Furthermore, DALA finds extensive use as a solvent and functions as a corrosion inhibitor, ore flotation agent, and a key component in rubber processing. Its diverse applications make it an essential ingredient across several industries.

Storage & Handling

Handling Recommendations
  • Keep containers closed when not in use.
  • Open containers slowly to allow any excess pressure to vent.
  • Keep away from heat, sparks, flame, or other sources of ignition.
  • Protect small containers from physical damage.
  • Use proper electrical grounding and bonding procedures when loading, unloading, and transferring.
  • Use spark-resistant tools.
  • Electrical equipment and circuits in all storage and handling areas must conform to requirements of national electrical code (Articles 500 and 501) for hazardous location.
