Industrial Chemical

The chemicals that have developed and manufactured for use in industrial operations.

Calcium Carbonate


Calcium carbonate is a white, odorless powder or colorless crystals. Practically insoluble in water. Calcium carbonate has many applications in several industries.

Application

  • Used as filler in paper, plastics, extender in paints. Filler is used at the wet-end of paper making machines, and calcium carbonate filler allows for the paper to be bright and smooth. As an extender, calcium carbonate can represent as much as 30% by weight in paints. Calcium carbonate also is used widely as a filler in adhesives, and sealants
  • Coating pigment in coating industries
  • Additive/supplement in animal feeds and agriculture.

Storage

Store in the original bags in a cool place protected from the heat. Keep away from absorb moisture and water. The bags, which have been opened, should be carefully closed before storage.
Storage life at 30°C : >12 months

Packing

Calcium Carbonate is available in bags of 25kg / bag with woven bag and inner polyethylene liner.

Kaolin


Kaolin is a clay mineral, with a soft consistency and earthy texture. It is an aluminum silicate represented as Al203-2Si0 2-2H20 .It is distinguished from other industrial clays based on its fine particle size and pure coloring. Its ability to disperse in water make it an ideal pigment.

Application

  • used in adhesives, resins, rubber goods, ceramics, paint, inks and plastics.
  • used in paper industry. It serves as a paper coating which improves appearance by contributing to brightness, smoothness and gloss. It also improves printability. Additionally, it is used by the paper industry as a filler reducing cost and the use of tree-based resources.

Toluene


Toluene also known as methyl benzene, is an organic chemical compound. It is a colorless, flammable, non-corrosive liquid with a benzene-like odor. It is insoluble in water and soluble in acetone, absolute alcohol, ether, chloroform, benzene, petroleum ether, glacial acetic acid, and carbon disulfide.

Application

Common solvent used for glues, paints, paint thinners, printing ink, rubber, leather tanner, silicon sealants and chemical reactants.

Methylene Chloride


Methylene Chloride also known as Dichloromethane is an organic compound. It is a clear, colorless, nonflammable, volatile liquid chlorinated hydrocarbon with a sweet and pleasant smell. Methylene chloride is used in many industrial and consumer applications.

Application

  • Used as solvent in paint strippers and removers
  • As a process solvent in the manufacture of drugs, pharmaceuticals, and film coatings
  • As a metal cleaning and finishing solvent in electronics manufacturing.

Diethylene Glycol


Diethylene Glycol (DEG) is a colorless, low-volatility, low viscosity, hygroscopic liquid. Under normal conditions, diethylene glycol has no detectable odor; however, under high vapor concentrations, a slightly sweet odor may be detected. It is completely miscible with water and many organic liquids.

Application

  • Raw material for the production of plasticizers and polyester resins, a textile lubricant and coupling agent,
  • A solvent in textile dyeing and printing.
  • An effective softening agent, making glues and adhesives

Storage

Diethylene Glycol (DEG) should be stored in tightly closed, properly labelled containers in a cool, secure, and properly marked location. Keep away from heat and sources of ignition. Storage life at 30°C: 12 months

Packing

Diethylene Glycol is available in metal drums (225 kg)

Caprolactam


Caprolactam is produced as a crystalline form. Caprolactam is a raw material (monomer) for the polyamide-6 production with a wide application.

Application

  • As a source for plastic, bristles, film and coating with the following properties
