CREMER Tech for Technical Applications

CREMER OLEO offers a wide range of plant-based oleochemical derivatives for technical applications. Short- and medium-chain fatty acids, for example, are an essential ingredient for lubricants. Stearic acids are a popular fuel for candles and are also used as release agents in the plastics industry.  

Glycerin serves as an antifreeze and, like fatty acids, is also used in the production of resins, varnishes and paints. An important building block for the production of surfactants are fatty alcohols, which are available in different variants at CREMER Oleo. Other products such as different methyl esters, fatty acid esters, monopropylene glycol (MPG) and various vegetable oils round off the CREMER Tech portfolio.

Fatty Acids

Fatty acids from CREMER OLEO are used, for example, in textile and plastics production as well as in the manufacture of paints and coatings or lubricants. Stearic acid ranks second on the list of the most popular candle raw materials in Germany.

Fatty Acid and Methyl Esters

Our fatty acid and methyl esters are used as lubricants and solvents or as plasticizers, for example in the production of lubricants, paints, coatings and adhesives. Manufacturers of food packaging use the fatty acid ester MCT oil as a lubricant.

Bioethanol is used for the production of antifreeze agents and liquids for windshield wiper systems. As CREMER OLEO is listed on ECHA's Article 95 list, our bioethanol can also be used as a biocide for disinfectants, for example. Furthermore, ethanol is widely used in the production of paints, inks, varnishes and alkyd resins, as a heat transfer medium, in aerosols and also in the off-shore industry..
