ESTEROL 122 Ethyl Oleate (High Oleic- No Methyl)

Product Description

Esterol 122™ 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: Ethyl Oleate, Ethylated Seed Oil

CHEMICAL COMPOSITION: Ethyl Esters of High Oleic Oil

CHARACTERISTICS: ESTEROL 122™ is a pale yellow oily liquid with a pleasant fatty ester odour.

Product Performance

ESTEROL 122 as a fatty ester product has excellent solvency powers and hence can easily be formulated with a wide range of oils, surfactants and oil soluble materials. Based on High Oleic Oil, its fatty acids are predominantly oleic (approx. 80%) which results in liquid product which has superior oxidative stability when compared with other fatty esters. ESTEROL 122 is nonvolatile and is safe to handle. Natural or synthetic antioxidants can be added to ESTEROL 122 on request which will further increase its oxidative stability.

Product Usage

ESTEROL 122 contains less than 0.1% of methyl esters enabling the use of a fatty ester where methyl esters may be undesirable.

Key Points

  • 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.
  • Low Methyl Ester content enables use where methyl esters are undesirable.
  • Oxidative stability ensures a longer life or a wider range of conditions before any natural deterioration is observed.
