METAL WORKING LUBRICANTS:

EstiChem products for use in Metalworking Fluids such as cutting oils, water-miscible cutting fluids, stamping fluids, minimal lubrication fluids, lubrication tank side additive, and deep drawing lubricants.

  • ESTILUBE® esters are applied as lubricant base oils in water-miscible fluids and straight oils
  • ESTIMOL® esters are self-emulsifying polymer esters with very high lubrication properties
  • ESTISURF® surfactants work as emulsifiers for the base oil and corrosion inhibitors in water-miscible metalworking fluids
  • Esti-Chem Defoamers have a unique combination of efficiency, persistancy and do not lead to problems in subsequent surface finishing such as painting or phosphating

METAL DEGREASERS & CLEANERS:

Individual surfactants, solvents, corrosion inhibitors and defoaming agents as well as preblended concentrates.

                  • ESTISOL® solvent esters are replacing hydrocarbon solvents in open cleaning installations which reduce VOC emission and skin irritation. They can be used as solvency boosters for aliphatic hydrocarbons.  This is a lower priced way to make products less harmful, switching from an aromatic-containing solvent to an aliphatic / ester mix.
                  • ESTISURF®can be added to make the products water-washable
                  • Optimized ESTISURF® surfactant packages are effective and convenient starting points for formulating alkaline, pH-neutral and acidic metal degreasers
                  • EstiChem also provide effective low-foaming hydrotropes for such formulations and well as silicone oil-free defoamers

GRAPHIC ARTS – PRINTING INKS:

ESTISOL® ester solvents offer a range of formulation components for printing inks applications.  The ESTISOL® esters are based on natural fatty acids and can be applied as base oils in the ink formulations, or as alternatives to aromatic and naphthenic solvents as solvency-boosters for paraffinic base oils.

ESTISOL® esters are avilable in different boiling ranges to fit the needs for cold-set and heat-set inks.  One particular application is the use in food packaging inks, where hydrocarbon-free products can be formulated entirely using ESTISOL®.

GRAPHIC ARTS – PRESSROOM CHEMICALS:

The graphic arts industry utilizes ESTISOL® and ESTISURF® specialty products from EstiChem.  Their superior performance and attractive environmental profile are key reasons for success in this industry.  EstiChem offers solvents, surfactants, corrosion inhibitors and silicone oil-free defoamers as formulation components in cleaners and auxiliary products applied in the lithographic, UV, flexo, and screen printing industries.

EstiChem has extensive knowledge on the formulation of ink cleaners.

CONSTRUCTION CHEMICALS:

A broad range of EstiChem products find applications when formulating for the construction industry. ESTILUBE ester oils are applied in concrete mold release agents either as wetting agents and release additives in mineral oil-based products or as base fluids in biodegradable, ester-based fluids.

ESTISURF® surfactants work as emulsifiers for mineral and ester oils, as levelling agents and as corrosion inhibitors to prevent corrosion on the mold surface.

The DEFOAMER series of silicone oil-free defoamers may be applied in aqueous formulations of various construction chemicals. Being free from silicone oils the DEFOAMER products do no lead to problems with subsequent surface finishing such as painting.

ESTICLEAN® products are used as cleaners and release agents in the asphalt and road construction industry as replacements for diesel and other hydrocarbons.

HOUSEHOLD, INDUSTRIAL AND INSTITUTIONAL CLEANING:

Household Cleaners: EstiChem offers an interesting range of specialty raw materials for application in household cleaners, with several raw materials for application in eco-label products. We have formulation knowledge in the field of hard surface cleaners, degreasers, spot removers and other specialty cleaners in the medium, alkaline or acidic pH range. We can help you with formulation of concentrates or ready-to-use products.

Institutional Cleaners cover the application areas of EstiChem products for use in floor cleaners, hard surface cleaners and floor polish strippers. The use of ESTISOL® is optimal for removal of stubborn soils on sports floors, such a hand ball resin and adhesives. Floor cleaning machines often demand use of a defoamer to ensure effective waste water handling.

Industrial Cleaners: ESTISURF® surfactants, a basic component in industrial cleaners, cover a wide range of surface active components for the formulator, enabling formulations of water-based, petroleum-based or ester-based formulations. ESTISURF® nonionic surfactants cover a wide HLB-range and comprise fatty alcohol ethoxylates, polyglycol esters, and Alkyl Poly Glucosides. The product selection depends of the required foaming, cleaning, wetting and emulsification characteristics. The ESTISURF® anionics and amphoterics range offers hydrotropes, wetting agents, foam boosters, and cleaning surfactants for use in a wide range of industrial cleaners. ESTISURF® optimized surfactant packages provide an effective road to a quick product development for any application within the field of degreasers.

A very special group of ESTISURFS® are the MICROEMULSION CONCENTRATES, which offer the best of cleaning from two worlds in a water-based system, which performs with additional solvent power. MICROEMULSION TECHNOLOGY is a key feature on EstiChem´s technology platform. The resulting cleaners can often replace pure organic solvents or highly alkaline cleaners bringing performance benefits and an improved EH&S profile.

EstiChem DEFOAMERs are applied in floor cleaners, water treatment and in metal working fluid concentrates or as tank-side additives are silicone oil-free and offer trouble-free rinseability. The  defoamers have a unique combination of efficiency and persistency, are easy to dose and formulate and do not lead to problems in subsequent surface finishing such as painting or phosphate conversion coating.

FOUNDRY INDUSTRY:

ESTISOL®  esters are applied as high-performance solvents in cold-box formulation foundry applications. ESTISOL® esters combine high solvency power, well defined boiling range, saturated structure and low smoke generation.

ESTISOL®  esters are applied as carrier fluids for curing catalysts. The solvency power is high and the viscosity is low over a wide temperature range.Our RESIN CLEANER products find application as cleaning agents for PU resins. RESIN CLEANERS are formulated without the use of NMP and NEP solvents; a significant progress in the constant improvement of EH&S situation in the foundry industry.
