HYDROCARBONS

PGC represent a wide range of hydrocarbon solvents, including paraffins, aliphatic, SBPs, mineral spirits, aromatics and blends, quite a few usually consume in common products which depends on Solvent i.e. Paints & Coatings, Adhesives & Sealants, Dry Cleaning Fluids, Insecticides, Edible Oils and Tyres etc.

HEXANE EXTRACTION

Hexane Extraction is a clear, colourless liquid with a faint odour. It is a stable paraffinic hydrocarbon which is highly volatile and distils over a very narrow range. It is suitable for food and related industries such as in the production of edible oils.

Pentane 60/40

Pentane 60/40 is a blend of 60% n-pentane and 40% isopentane. It is a very fast evaporating hydrocarbon solvent and low in impurities such as sulphur, olefins, benzene and total aromatics. Typically this product finds use in applications where high volatility is required. Blowing agent, aerosol propellant and electronic cleaning are examples of such applications.

 Toluene

Technical grade Toluene is a fast evaporating, highly refined aromatic solvent that meets many specifications such as that of Nitration grade Toluene (ASTM D841). The boiling range of this versatile solvent is not wider than 1.0°C. In some regions the availability of this solvent is limited

C 9-10'

This grade is a mixture of C 9-10 aromatic hydrocarbons similar to C9. It contains less naphthalene content, lower than 1%. Its applications are the same as C10 but providing safer.

Hexane Polymer

Hexane, Polymerization grade is a fast evaporating hydrocarbon solvent that consists essentially of hexane isomers. A concentration of approximately 40% makes n-hexane the major component in this mixture. The high degree of carefully controlled refining results in a low level of impurities such as sulphur, olefins benzene, total aromatics and carbonyls. Polymerisation grade Hexane is particularly suitable as polymerisation medium and the manufacture of catalysts.

Rubber Solvent X2000

this grade is a wide boiling range, very rapidly evaporating solvent widely used in the rubber and related industry.

 Xylene

Technical grade Xylene is a faster evaporating hydrocarbon solvent with a flash point >21°C. It consists essentially of the ortho, meta, para xylene isomers and ethylbenzene.

 WS 200

The White (Mineral) Spirit range consists of products that are water-white, typically boil between 150 and 200°C and are a mixture of paraffins, cycloparaffins and aromatics.

Isopentane

Isopentane is a very fast evaporating hydrocarbon solvent that consists essentially of branched pentanes. The solvent is low in impurities such as sulphur, olefins, benzene and total aromatics and typically finds use as a blowing agent, aerosol propellant or internal coolant in gasphase polymerisation processes.

Rubber Solvent 60/145

PGC 60/145 is a wide boiling range, rapidly evaporating solvent widely used in the rubber and related industry.

C9

Solvent C9 is a mixture of predominantly C9 hydrocarbons with 98% aromatic, which confers good solvency. It has very low sulfur content.

Solvent 2046

Solvent 2046 is a wide boiling range, slow evaporationg solvent widely used in the mining industry and for a range of cleaning applications.

Pentane 80/20

Pentane 80/20 is a blend of 80% n-pentane and 20% isopentane. It is a very fast evaporating hydrocarbon solvent and low in impurities such as sulphur, olefins, benzene and total aromatics. Examples of end uses for this solvent are blowing agent, electronic cleaning and polymerisation. Blend ratios other than 80/20 are available.

SBP Solvent

In the range of SBPs, this solvent is a faster evaporating hydrocarbon solvent. The solvent has undergone a high degree of general refining that results in a low level of impurities such as sulphur, olefins, benzene and total aromatics. Rubber and related industries such as adhesives are typical end uses for this solvent.

C 9-11

This grade a mixture of C 9-11 hydrocarbons with >98% aromatic content which confers good solvency. It has very low sulfur content. This high boiling solvent is slow evaporating and has a high flash point.

 Cyclohexane

Cyclohexane is cycloparaffinic hydrocarbon containing 6 carbons. It is colorless liquid, fast evaporation and high solvency power. It is used in industrial adhesive formulations in particular non-Toluene formulation.  Other uses for cyclohexane include various solvent applications and the production of cyclohexanol and cyclohexanone.
