OXITENO'S highly integrated and productive operations ensure that its products perform efficiently in a wide range of markets, from cosmetics and beverage packaging to brake fluids, paints and varnishes. The product line includes organic intermediates, solvents, surfactants and chemical specialties.
OXITENO operates in over forty countries on five continents. Close to 30% of its output is exported to different companies all over the world through a network of distributors, representatives and agents.
The oxygenated solvents and chemical specialties of OXITENO provide high performance insofar as properties such as dispersion, solubilization, dilution, emulsification, coalescence and evaporation are concerned, among others, essential for the production and use of paints and varnishes.
The company counts on a team of specialized researchers who, in its modern laboratories, carry out a continuous process of research and development for making new products, applications and processes.
OXITENO'S line of oxygenated solvents is constituted of glycol ethers and its acetates, alcohols and methyl ethyl ketone. These products allow the paint manufacturer to reach a suitable balance in the varied formulations and they are a cleaner and higher performance alternative for aromatic solvents.
Moreover, OXITENO has an expressive presence in the surfactants sector. Such additives operate in several critical processes in water-based systems, providing stability and, consequently, optimizing production and improving the final product results.
