Product Description

Esterol 142™ 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



ESTEROL 142™ is a pale yellow oily liquid with a pleasant fatty ester odour.

Product Performance

ESTEROL 142TM 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.
