Solvent
Fluidar 100

A medium cut aromatic solvent. This aromatic tail is an important requirement for baking enamels commonly used by the automotive industry and other metal industries whose products require a durable high gloss finish. It is also used as a carrier for pesticides, especially chlorinated species. It is also used as a solvent in chlorinated rubber based swimming pool paints.

Solvent
Fluidar 150

A heavy aromatic solvent. This high solvency, slow evaporating solvent is suited to many specialized coatings applications including can, coil and stoving enamels. It is used extensively in pesticides.

Solvent
Fluiden 1520 (White Spirits)

It is a wide cut, slow evaporating, mainly aliphatic solvent. Its primary use is in the paint industry, but its properties of solvency and volatility result in an extremely wide range of applications. These include industrial cleaning and degreasing, blanket washes for the printing ink industry and in polish manufacturing. FLUIDEN 1520 complies with the requirements of SABS 716, which is the standard specification for mineral turpentine (white spirits).

Solvent
Fluiden 1528

Fluiden 1528 is a wide cut aliphatic solvent which is used in paints and polishes where a slow drying rate is required. It offers some advantages over Fluiden 1520 (white spirits) in cleaning and general solvent usage, due to its slower rate of evaporation.

Chemical
Hydrochloric Acid

Hydrochloric acid is a colourless to slightly yellow solution of hydrogen chloride gas (30% m/m) in water and is one of the most widely used chemicals throughout industry. It is used for the manufacture of other chemicals and pharmaceuticals, refining and processing of sugars, synthetic rubber production, leather processing, pickling of metals, scale removing, metallurgical extraction processing and regeneration of cation resins.

Chemical
MEA (Monoethanolamine)

In the form of an aqueous solution – is frequently used as an absorbent in gas scrubbing (amine scrubbing). In addition, Monoethanolamine is an intermediate chemical product in the manufacture of timber preservatives as well as tensides for detergents and cleaning agents. It also finds application as an organic solvent in the dye and pulp industry. Other fields of application include lubricants, textiles, cosmetics and pharmaceutical ingredients.

Solvent
