ESTEROL 113 Methyl Tallowate
Esterol 113 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 Tallowate
CHEMICAL COMPOSITION Tallow, Methyl Ester
CHARACTERISTICS ESTEROL 113> is a pale yellow oily
liquid with a pleasant fatty ester odour.
May partly or completely solidify if
cooled below 150C.
ESTEROL 113TM 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 prime tallow, its fatty acids are predominantly oleic and
stearic which results in a product which is oxidatively stable, nonvolatile and
readily biodegradable. Fatty esters are suitable as low hazard replacements for
aromatic or petrochemical solvents.
Metal working: Lubricants
Textile: Spinning Lubricant
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 specialized lubricant products.
