Applications for biosolvent
Case History n. 1
ASTROBIO™ AP is effective as a green cleaning solvent for polyesters.
ASTROBIO™ AP is used by several of our clients for cleaning applications.
In particular, ASTROBIO™ AP is really a great and a green alternative to NMP (N Methyl-2-pyrrolidone) when it comes to removing polyesters residues after polymerization reaction in industrial plants.
Nowadays, several of our clients are using ASTROBIO™ AP for this kind of purpose, gaining a sharp improvement of workers health protection and being able to reduce solvent consumption due to the high solvency power of our ASTROBIO™ AP towards certain kinds of saturated and unsaturated polyesters.

ASTROBIO™ SR is used in the production of novel bio-based lubricants.
ASTROBIO™ SR is already used by some of our costumers in the automotive industry.
Among others application, we discovered that ASTROBIO™ SR is really a great and a green alternative to some grades of white spirits (i.e. dearomatized paraffins D60) when it comes to diluting the base of a lubricant.
Nowadays, some of our European clients are using ASTROBIO™ SR in this kind of application, improving labelling of the final product and getting rid of the classicals petrochemicals solvents, enhancing the ecotoxicological profile of their final formulations and their bio- based content.
The use of ASTROBIO™ SR is particularly recommended when the base of the lubricant also comes from renewable sources or comes from green chemical processes. This combination makes it possible to obtain a final product that is really 100% renewable and has a truly green toxicological and eco-toxicological profile.

ASTROBIO™ XT is already used in the production of intumescent paints.
ASTROBIO™ XT is currently used by several of our European clients in paints and coatings industry.
ASTROBIO™ XT is really a great and a green alternative to Xylene in the formulation of several paints and coatings, in particular you can get outstanding results in your formulation of intumescent paints with our ASTROBIO™ XT.
Nowadays, several of our customers are using ASTROBIO™ XT in this kind of applications to replace Xylene, sharply improving working conditions and security for their employees, respecting local and European authorities obligations and improving labelling of their final formulations.
Our scientists have developed a brand new naphta replacement (btw it’s not labelled, plant-derived and readily biodegradable) for high perfomance cleaning and degreasing operations: ASTROBIO™ VG.Read More
Butyl glycol replacement? Now it’s possible! We would like to highlight and updating ruling and labeling perspectives of a very widespread solvent, butyl glycol (CAS 111-76-2). This solvent, with an...Read More
Our mission at Eurocoat 2016 was to provide to the industry, mainly to the coatings one, some bio-based alternatives to petrochemicals solvents. It's well known that now many raw materials...Read More
