ESTEROL 145 Butyl Oleate (High Acid)
Esterol 145 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: Butyl Oleate, Butylated Seed Oil
CHEMICAL COMPOSITION: Canola Oil, Butyl Ester
CHARACTERISTICS: ESTEROL 145 is a pale yellow
oily liquid with a pleasant fatty ester
ESTEROL 145TM as a fatty ester 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
Metal working: Lubricants
Rubber: Release agent
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.
