METAL DEGREASERS

 

A broad range of Esti Chem products find applications in the formulation of metal degreasers. 

 
ESTISOL solvent esters are replacing hydrocarbon solvents in open cleaning installations which reduce VOC emission and skin irritation. ESTISURFs can be added to make the products water-washable. 
 
Optimized ESTISURF surfactant packages are effective and convenient starting points for formulating alkaline, pH-neutral and acidic metal degreasers. Esti Chem also provide effective low-foaming hydrotropes for such formulations and well as silicone oil-free defoamers.

For heavy-duty degreasers a range of ESTISOL-based microemulsion packages are available to the formulator to be applied as base components in the development work. Esti Chem´s proprietary micro emulsion technology provides excellent degreasing properties at only slightly alkaline pH – a huge benefit for the environment and when cleaning aluminum or yellow metals.
