Introduction – Erucamide Slip Usage
Erucamide is waxy solid. Its molecular structure contains one unsaturated double bond, which has a long carbon chain and polar acylamino. It does not dissolve in water, but it has certain solubility in organic solvents including ketone, ester, alcohol, ether, and benzene, good intermiscibility with resin, as well as excellent liquidity and surface activity. It also has a high fusion point and excellent thermostability, which is applicable to higher processing temperatures. It is a non-ionic surface-active agent with excellent properties, which are non-poisonous (FDA proof) and non-corrosion.

Erucamide vs oleamide
The properties of erucamide are better than oleic acid amide, because erucic acid amide has better stable processing performance than oleic acid amide, and does not turn yellow and age. In addition, the precipitation of erucamide is slow, so the long-term friction coefficient of erucamide is lower than that of oleic amide.
