For dosing, pumping triethanolamine, Chemical formula (C2H5) 3N, often used the designation Et3N.
It has the following physical properties: at room temperature it is a mobile liquid. Temperature melting –114.8 ° C, boiling point 89.5 ° C, auto-ignition temperature 240 ° C.
Limitedly soluble in water, readily soluble in acetone, benzene, chloroform, miscible with ethanol, diethyl on air.
Corrosive to aluminum, zinc, copper and their alloys in the presence of moisture, also for some types of plastic, rubber and polymer coatings, so stored in steel containers. Reacts violently with the strong oxidizers with risk of fire and explosion. The pair of three ethylamines is heavier than air, so it spreads on the ground.
