ESTEROL 126 Ethyl Tallowate
Esterol 126 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:
Tallow, Ethyl Ester
ESTEROL 126 is a pale yellow oily
liquid with a pleasant fatty ester odour.
May partly or completely solidify if
cooled below 100C.
ESTEROL 126TM 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 result in a 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
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.
