SGS now offers tall oil and pine chemicals testing in the USA, helping pine chemicals producers and users ensure product and feedstock quality.

Located in Jacintoport, Texas, USA, the SGS tall oil and pine chemistry lab tests to industry standards on a 24/7/365 basis. Client tall oil samples are accepted on a global basis.

Tall oil is obtained as a by-product of wood pulp manufacturing, and is typically a viscous yellow-black liquid. Tall oil is also called "liquid rosin" or "tallol".

SGS tall oil test methods include ASTM D-5974 to determine the relative fatty acid content of customer’s crude tall oil (CTO) samples along with other globally accepted ASTM and PCTM test methods established by the PCA (Pine Chemicals Association) to measure additional chemical and physical properties of tall oils.
