Crude Tall Oil

Crude Tall Oil Products

Crude Tall Oil (CTO) is a by-product of the kraft pulping process used by many paper mills. Tall oil soap is collected at the mills and then acidulated to make crude tall oil. The crude tall oil is a mixture of fatty acids, rosin and other neutral materials. The CTO can then be further refined through the fractionation process to separate it into the components of tall oil fatty acid, tall oil rosin, distilled tall oil, pitch and heads.

CTO can also be used as a raw material for oil and gas drilling applications. Our XTOL® modified tall oil (MTO) is an oxidized crude tall oil used as an oil mud emulsifier in drilling applications. XTOL MTO crude tall oil is a source of low-cost, high viscosity fatty acid which has a high tolerance for contaminants. It forms water-in-oil emulsions and stabilizes mud systems at high bottom-hole temperatures.
