Applications

Industrial Use

Typical cleaning agents in the metal cleaning sector are mainly petrochemicals of fossil origin. Estimated to account for more than 1/10 of total demand, these petrochemical solvants contributes significantly to total VOC emissions. Ester solvents are environmental friendly and safe alternatives. Moreover due to their high efficiency and low evaporation rate the use of Radia esters is also cost effective.

Offset Ink

Vegetable oil esters are excellent alternatives for mineral distillates in offset printing. Radia ester solvents comply with the most recent legislation regarding food contact materials (Swiss Ordinance and EU 10/2011) and are therefore the solvents of choice for the formulation of offset printing inks for food contact. They improve pigment wetting which results in stronger color intensities, and higher molecular weight esters with low viscosity allow the formulation of low migration inks.
