Solvents are used in various applications such as paints and varnishes, printing inks, household and institutional cleaners, leather and many others.

Nowadays sustainable solvents are the largest growth among current solvents.

More than high performance solvents, they are aligned with the most restrictive global legislations as well as with enviromental needs.

They present low carbon footprint and are not toxic to humans or to environment.

That's the Augeo® proposal!

With proven performance, the Augeo® line has been gaining increasingly demanding markets because of its differentiated benefits.

Augeo® Clean Multi

Sustainable Solvent with high cleaning performance

A bio-based solvent with low odor and non toxic 

Man cleaning cleaning kitchen

Augeo® Clean Multi provides efficient cleaning and active solvency power for homecare and industrial products. Due to its polarity, it is able to dissolve both water-soluble and oil-soluble soil, helping your formulation to effectively clean both kinds of soil and improving its wettability. 

Augeo® Clean Multi also acts as coupling agent by compatibilizing the hydrophobic oils and soils into water, holding the soils into water, holding the soils in suspension and preventing it from re-depositing into the substrate. It has the adequate evaporation rate in order to garantee effective removal of soils.

Applications

  • Window/Glass Cleaners
  • Multi-Purpose Cleaners
  • Bathroom Cleaners
  • Home Care Wipes
  • Kitchen Cleaners
  • Metal Cleaners
  • Floor Cleaners
  • Oven Cleaners


Benefits & Differentials

  • Excellent for surface care
  • Act as coupling agent
  • Milder formulations keeping efficiency
  • Fragrance enhancement due to low odor
  • Improves formulation stability 
  • Environmental friendly product
  • LVP VOC
  • Low carbon footprint

Augeo® Clean Plus is a perfect fit for household, industrial and degreasing formulations where performance is required to remove heavy soils.

Augeo® Clean Plus efficiently reduces the surface tension of water, improving its wettability and, consequently, the contact between soiled surface and cleaning formulation. Once the surface tension of the water is lowered it facilitates the suspension of the soil and preventing it from re-depositing on the cleaners  surface before it can be wiped or rinsed away, resulting in a more effective cleaning.

Applications

Industrial Cleaning

  • Industrial oily soils
  • Industrial degreaser
  • Machinery and duty cleaner
  • Industrial kitchen and oven cleaner

Homecare Cleaning

  • Multipurpose Cleaner
  • Kitchen and Oven Cleaner
  • Bathroom Cleaner
  • Heavy Duty
  • Fragrance Dilution

 

Benefits & Differentials

  • Excellent for degreasing product
  • Milder formulations keeping efficiency
  • Environmental friendly product 
  • LVP VOC
  • Low carbon footprint
  • Fragrance enhancement due to low odor
  • It has Lower polarity hence more compatible with non-polar soil

AUGEO CLEAN MULTI - v.03 Inglês-01

Augeo® SL 191 is a slow-evaporating solvent composed molecule that joins diversified chemical functions in the same struture, and which have very interisting, specific characteristics for solubilization and film formation with the principal resins and polymers used on the paint and coating market.

A characteristic that differentiates the Augeo® SL 191 from other slow evaporating solvents available on the market is that its odor is practically imperceptible, thus making eligible for the most diverse applications.

Augeo® SL 191 was evaluated based on criteria and methods established by the GHS (Globally Harmonized System), presenting an excellent toxicological and eco-toxicological profile.

Epoxy Systems

Augeo® SL 191 is diluent that presents the right properties to be used as a plasticizer in thermoset epoxy systems emerging as an alternative to traditional plasticizers in the market, such as benzyl alcohol. 

Its adequate boiling point and unique molecular structure makes it interesting for diluting curing agents in epoxy systems that will be cured at room or low temperatures. 

In the films where Augeo® SL 191 was used as a plasticizer, it was observed a much lower yellowing progression caused by photo-oxidation when compared to the films containing the traditional plasticizer.

Furthermore, due to its HSE (health, safety and environment) profile, Augeo® SL 191 became not only a good technical solution for epoxy systems but also a sustainable solution.
