There are several options available for those looking at green solvents to replace traditional industrial solvents in the workplace. We thought it would be helpful to provide a brief summary highlighting a few of the essential raw materials used in some of our blends. These materials are available as stand alone products or in customized formulations.
Propylene Carbonate: Can be used to replace harsher solvents such as methylene chloride, acetone, aromatic solvents, and other highly volatile and hazardous solvents.
Glycerine Carbonate: Ideal for cosmetic, personal care, and medicinal applications. Excellent co-solvent for custom-tailored blends.
Dimethyl Esters (DMEs)
Highly effective and versatile solvent used in many coatings applications and as a component or stand alone solvent for industrial cleaning. We currently provide DMEs in customized blends for several manufacturers and formulators.
Bio-based raw material that can be used on a variety of substrates This product isreadily biodegradable with excellent compatibility with other solvents in formulations or micro-emulsions containing d’Limonene, NMP, mineral spirits, and alcohols.
Tripropylene Glycol (Mono) Methyl Ether (TPM)
Very low volatility, low odor, completely water miscible and versatile co-solvent in coatings and cleaners. Applications in coatings and cleaners, as well as agricultural, electronic, ink, textile and adhesive products.
Lactate esters are readily biodegradable with very low toxicity and excellent solvency. Can be used to replace solvents or as co-solvent in custom blends and formulations.
Cost-effective, low regulatory constraints, great substitute for dimethyl acetamide, dimethyl formamide and N-methyl pyrrolidone. This material offers a wide range of application potential with safer characteristics than other alternative solvents.
