Formula: C8/10H2n+1OH; n=6,8
CO-1055 is a mixture of Caprylic (39-46.5%) and Decyl (52-
56.5%); ‘n’ in the structural diagram above refers to the differ-
ent carbon chain lengths present, from C6 up to C12. It is a
clear liquid under ambient conditions with a fishy alcohol odor.
(all properties @ 23.9°C (75°F), 760mmHg unless stated)
Insoluble in water under ambient conditions.
End-use applications for CO-1055 include alkyl amines, alumi-
num rolling lubricants, tertiary amines, antioxidants, concrete
anti-spalling agents, cosmetics, defoamers, ethoxylates, hal-
ides/mercaptans, lubricant oil additives, methacrylates, phos-
phated alcohols, plasticizers, plastic lubricants/mold release,

GENERAL INFORMATION cont…
All of our fatty alcohol brands are produced in P&G Chemi-
cals’ global fatty alcohol network. They are manufactured
entirely from naturally occurring vegetable oils.
• No preservatives or additives are present.
• No gluten/wheat, corn, dairy, egg, fish/shellfish, sulfites,
yeast, starch, MSG, peanut, other nut, rice, sugar, or
sodium potential allergens are present.
• Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE) and Transmis-
sible Spongiform Encephalopathy (TSE) are not a con-
cern with CO-1055, Caprylic/Decyl Alcohol.
• At the low vacuum (12-18 mmHg) and high tempera-
ture (up to 550 degF) at which our process operates, we
do not believe that microbiological activities exist.
Shelf life is affected by how a product is stored. P&G
Chemicals has conducted extensive stability study tests for
our NF Fatty Alcohols. For this reason, P&G Chemicals only
provides shelf life for NF Alcohols for which a stability study
has been conducted. For all other Alcohol and Related
