HEAVY AROMATIC 220

This aromatic solvent is a mixture of mono‐, di‐ and tri‐alkylated aromatic compounds with aliphatic compounds. It is a highly soluble clear liquid free from sediments. It is used in making solvents, agrochemicals and baked enamels (cars, refrigerators, washing machines).

HEAVY INDUSTRIAL AROMATIC

This aromatic solvent is a mixture of mono‐, di‐ and tri‐alkylated aromatic compounds with aliphatic compounds. It is a highly soluble clear liquid free from sediments. It is used in making solvents, agrochemicals and baked enamels (cars, refrigerators, washing machines).

BENZENE

Benzene comprises six carbon atoms and six hydrogen atoms in a ring shape structure. It is a clear, colourless, and volatile liquid, with a characteristic aromatic hydrocarbon odour. Industrially is obtained from “reformate”, having numerous applications. Benzene is used in basic chemistry, generally as raw material for the elaboration of different products: phenol, cyclohexane, styrene, synthetic laundry soap, maleic anhydride, etc. It is also used in adhesives, synthetic rubber, etc. It is recommended to prohibit absolutely the use of benzene for the cleaning of pieces, equipment, clothes, any type of fabric, hands, etc., by its high risk for the health and the environment.

CYCLOHEXANE

This naphthenic or cycloparaffinic product is obtained by the catalytic hydrogenation of benzene. It is a crystalline, high‐purity product whose solubility is similar to that of paraffinic products. Its chemical structure is in a ring shape with six saturated carbon atoms. Its main use is in the synthesis of caprolactam, adipic acid and hexamethylenediamine to produce different types of nylon and polyamides. Cyclohexane is also used as solvent in cellulose esters, resins, paints, oil extraction, etc.

ORTHOXYLENE

Orthoxylene is obtained by a catalytic process from a light hydrocarbon stream and removed by distillation from their isomers. Its molecular structure consists of a benzene ring with two methyl groups attached next to each other. Is used in the synthesis of phtalic anhydrides, dyes, medicines, PVC plasticizers. It is also used to make polyester and alkyd resins, insecticides, automotive fuels, etc.

TOLUENE

Toluene is a colourless liquid with a characteristic aromatic odour (smoother than the benzene). It is generally produced along with benzene, xylenes, and C9 aromatics, from the “catalytic reforming” of naphtha (and finally separated by distillation). It has the highest solvent power among hydrocarbon solvents. It is used as a solvent for resins, oils, rubber, lacquer, paints and adhesives. It is also used for the production of benzene (through a process of hydrodealkylation, HDA) and phenol. But its main chemical application is the production of TDI (toluene diisocyanate), which is the raw material to manufacture polyurethanes.

XYLENE MIXTURE

Also named Xilol, it is a mixture of xylene isomers (meta‐, para‐, and ortho‐) and ethylbenzene. They are aromatic hydrocarbons with eight carbon atoms, mainly metaxylene, ethylbenzene, and paraxylene, because the orthoxylene has been partially removed. It is used in high‐octane gasoline and thinners. It is also used to manufacture protective coatings, agrochemicals, etc. It is a very good solvent for alkyd resins, lacquer, enamels, rubber cements, etc.

WHITE SPIRIT

White spirit is a mixture of paraffinic, cycle paraffinic, and aromatic hydrocarbons with boiling ranges between 145 and 218 °C. It is a colorless, chemically stable, non‐corrosive liquid, and with a soft, sweet odor. Also, it does not leave any stains after evaporation. It is mainly used in thinners for paints, so its characteristics are: • High solvent power. • Quick evaporation at the beginning, which prevents paint from running. • It reduces paints´ viscosity and allows the application of thin and uniform films. • Slow evaporation at the end (so paint does not dry in the applicator). Metallurgical industries use white spirit to clean grease off. It is also used as solvent in wax, polish, and dry cleaning industries.

NORMAL PENTANE

Normal pentane is a colourless liquid, extremely flammable at ambient temperature, with a high vapour tension. It is an aliphatic solvent of normal paraffins with five saturated carbono atoms, obtained by molecular extraction. It is used in solvent extraction processes; pesticides; polymerization (expanded polystyrene), desorption from molecular sieves, etc.

NORMAL PARAFFINS CLAB

Product purely paraffinic (C10‐C14), liquid at ambient temperature, appreciated because of its high inflammation point and low content of sulphur and aromatic hydrocarbons. Mainly used as raw material in the petrochemical industry, besides being used as a solvent itself.

SOLVENT B

Basically, the solvent B is a hydrocarbon mixture mainly constituted by normal and iso paraffins. Solvent B has a distillation range that meets the demands of the rubber industry for the manufacture of balloons, balls, dummies, teats, gloves, draft excluders, etc. In this kind of industry it is used to wet surfaces to be stuck together and for making contact adhesives. In hot sticking inner tubes patches, where drying is a function of temperature, this solvent is excellent because of its controlled evaporation. As it has a wide distillation range, solvent B is used in garages and industries to clean and remove grease; or at home when quick drying of surfaces to be cleaned is required.

SOLVENT C

Basically, the solvent C is a hydrocarbon mixture mainly constituted by normal and iso paraffins of C6. It is used mainly for extracting vegetable oils (edible or not), such as peanut, sunflower, olive, corn, soya, grape, cotton, prickly pear, castor oil, avocado pear, etc. The solvent removes the oil directly from crushed seed or from cakes made by pressing seeds. As the extracted oil is used for human consumption, and the cakes are used to make flour or in balanced food, the solvent must meet strict quality standards, apart from the common requirements set for the other solvents: • Narrow distillation range, to not to contaminate with solvent neither the oil nor the cake. • Virtually null distillation residues, to assure absence of strange components in the solvent. • Low content of aromatic compounds. • Very low content of sulphur, to avoid oil reactions. This solvent is also used in removing essential oils and in the formulations of quick dry lacquers and thinners. Solvent C meets the requirements of Resolution N° 2012/84 of the Argentine Food Code.

DBI

Basically, it is a hydrotreated kerosene, mostly paraffinic. It is used mainly as a raw material for the petrochemical industry, as well as as an agrochemical solvent (formulation of insecticides and herbicides).

It is produced in Catalytic Cracking Units of Refineries. Applications as fuel, raw material for the synthesis of olefins.

BUTENE 1

Butene 1 is a high purity gas (more than 99 %) produced by distillation and selective hydrogenation of a butane/butene refinery stream. Butene 1 is used in the production of butyl mercaptan, butylene oxide, succinimide (as dispersant), aldehyde intermediates, alcohols, and other C4s’ derivatives; and as co‐monomer in high and low density polyethylene production.

ISOOCTENE

This solvent is obtained by dimerization of isobutene and other butenes. Branched alkenes of C8 are ultimately used in the manufacture of plasticizers via isononyl alcohol and diisononyl ftalato units.

ALCOHOLS

METHANOL

METHANOL

Also known as methyl alcohol (CH3OH), methanol is obtained by reforming of natural gas as a combination of carbon oxides and hydrogen. After synthesized under pressure in a catalytic process, crude methanol is purified by distillation to chemical grade. Methyl alcohol or methanol is used to produce formaldehyde (chemical intermediate for the production of urea‐formaldehyde and phenol‐ formaldehyde resins); to manufacture antifreezes, MTBE (methyl tert‐butyl ether) an important component of fuels for internal combustion engines; to denature ethyl alcohol, and as solvent for common uses.

HYDRATES INHIBITOR

YFLUX-1 PARAFFINS INHIBITOR

FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, SELECT A PRODUCT

HYDRATES INHIBITOR

Alcohol mixture designed to control the formation of gas hydrates in gas production and transportation facilities. Gas hydrates are generated due to the presence of water and condensate in the gas lines, at low temperatures and high pressures, causing them to clog. Such obstructions can cause pipe ruptures and consequently lost production. The product prevents the formation of hydrate plugs and blockages of gas lines. Avoid breakage of production and transport lines.

YFLUX-1 PARAFFINS INHIBITOR

They are specific additives in a hydrocarbon matrix. Paraffins are compounds present in oil that by changes in pressure conditions, temperature and/or crude composition can be precipitated from the liquid´s breast, causing tangles, high loading losses in the lines and deposits in process tanks. Final consequence: losses in oil production. This product is an effective agent in the control of paraffins, which is used in the production segment with the aim of reducing the oil Pour Point and inhibiting paraffin deposition.
