ESTEROL 112 Methyl Oleate
Esterol 112 is a fatty ester derived from natural oils that has excellent solvency properties, is readily biodegradable and has low toxicity characteristics.
COMMON AND OTHER NAMES: Methyl Oleate, Methylated Seed Oil
CHEMICAL COMPOSITION: Canola Oil, Methyl Ester
CHARACTERISTICS: ESTEROL 112 is a pale yellow oily liquid with a pleasant fatty ester odour.
ESTEROL 112TM has excellent solvency powers and hence can easily be formulated with a wide range of oils, surfactants and oils soluble materials.
Based on Canola oil, its fatty acids are predominantly oleic which results in liquid product which is oxidatively stable, nonvolatile and readily biodegradable.
Fatty esters are suitable as low hazard replacements for aromatic or petrochemical solvents.
Printing : De-inking of rollers
: Solvent and carrier for active ingredients
: Can be used as solvent replacement in graffiti remover, degreaser or ether cleaning applications
Low toxicity means that it poses a low health and safety risk for users.
Readily Biodegradable means that it will have a low environmental impact.
Excellent solvency properties can provide formulators with replacements for petroleum derived solvents.
High lubricity and low volatility characteristics can provide the properties required of oily bases in specialised lubricant products.
