GLYCOLS

Propylene Glycol is an important chemical with a large number of industrial applications – from food processing to polymer manufacturing, and as a heat exchange fluid.

Its natural properties allow it to easily absorb water and moisture from materials and from areas with which it is in contact.

Crestchem has long-standing expertise in supplying graded propylene glycol to suit a wide range of applications.

  • MPG (Monoprolyene Glycol) Tech – has a minimum purity of 99.5% and is most commonly used as a coolant or anti-freeze product, and as a de-icing agent for runways and aircraft along with being used in heat transfer fluids and engine coolants.
  • MPG USP – With a minimum purity of 99.8%, MPG USP is commonly used as a carrier in e-cigarette / vape products, delivering the flavour and providing a throat-hit which ex-smokers look for in vape products. It is also used as an emulsifier in cosmetics as well as many more applications.
  • DPG (Dipropylene Glycol) Tech
  • DPG USP

ETHANOLAMINES (Amines)

Amines are derivatives of ammonia, wherein one or more hydrogen atoms have been replaced by a substituent such as an alkyl or aryl group. A specific type of Amine we distribute are Ethanolamines, which are made through a chemical reaction of ethylene oxide with ammonia. They are a family of chemicals that work as surfactants and emulsifying ingredients in personal care products and cleaning products. Common ethanolamines in our range include Monoethanolamine (MEA), Diethanolamine (DEA) and Triethanolamine (TEA).

ROSIN ESTERS

Rosin is a solid resin extracted from plants and trees and consists primarily of organic acids, which are reacted with alcohols (most commonly glycerol or pentaerythritol) to produce rosin esters and hydrogenated rosin esters. These esters offer high levels of tack and resilience when added to other resin systems and the softening points of the resins are controlled. Further control on the reaction determines the acid value of the finished ester. Rosin esters vary in colour from amber to white, and offers very diverse applications, such as adhesives, the cosmetics, printing inks or road marking paints.

They are widely used as tackifiers in various applications including flooring, depilatory waxes and woodworking. Tackifiers are chemical compounds used in formulating adhesives to increase the tack, the stickiness of the surface of the adhesive. Rosin esters available for purchase also can be used in offset printing inks and varnishes, being used globally in applications including adhesives, coatings, and cosmetics.
