High purity branched acetate esters, specialty solvent for coatings and carrier for actives in pesticide formulations.
Now available directly from the producer – Hallstar. With over a decade of experience as a global supplier and producer for the Exxate™ branded acetate esters, Hallstar will reinvigorate the brand with direct technical support and improved economics of selling direct to the customer base.
Although many believed the Exxate™ products were no longer available, these continue to be used by many multinational coatings companies and agricultural formulators.
As a Coating Solvent:
Exxate™ products are used when surface perfection is a must. With ultra-low moisture absorption and excellent solvent release from the film, Exxate™ acetate esters are designed to reduce blistering and corrosion. These products have tightly defined chain lengths that provide clearly defined evaporation rates for a controlled release, limiting surface imperfections. Additionally, these can be used as polymerization solvents as Exxate™ esters are highly efficient at solvating polymers and allow formulators to use significantly less initiator compared with other standard solvents.
As a Carrier for Actives in Pesticides:
Exxate™ products are excellent solubilizers for active ingredients in pesticide formulations and used in both AgChem and Ornamental applications. They have also been designed to be easily emulsified. The Exxate™ acetate esters are incorporated into pesticide formulations for a range of delivery systems including EC – Emulsifiable Concentrate, SC – Suspension Concentrate, EW – Concentrated Emulsion and ME – Micro-emulsion formulations. With improved solubility of AI’s, these products have allowed formulators to shift from SC to EC formulations as well.
