Brief Overview:

Distilled Tall Oil is a mixture of fatty acids, rosin acids and other components. It is obtained from the distillation of Tall Oil, which is a by-product of the Kraft process of pulping coniferous trees for wood pulp manufacture.


Synthetic Process:

Distilled Tall Oil is derived from the fractional distillation of Crude Tall Oil under high vacuum. Distilled tall oil appears as a mixture of unsaturated acids: linolic, linolenic and others, as well as of resin acids: abietic, dihydroabietic, palustric and others.


  • Metalworking fluids: Distilled tall oil is used in metalworking fluids which cool and/or lubricate metal workpieces that may reach high temperatures due to friction.


  • Oil field drilling fluids: fluids used to aid the drilling of boreholes into the earth for oil extraction.


  • Soaps, cleaners: used as a component of soaps and cleaners


  • Alkyd resins: used in alkyd resins which are used in making protective coatings with good weathering properties and are important ingredients in many synthetic paints
