Terpene solvent

Dipentene 10

Selected blend of terpene hydrocarbons and alcohols with different evaporation rates.
Aspect: clear colourless to slightly yellowish liquid. Pine like odour.


Dipentene 10 is used in paints and varnishes, oilfield, waxes and cleaning products.
In paints, it acts as anti-skinning agent, as it will delay the formation of the skin at the surface.
It increases tolerance to thinning by allowing a better dispersibility of resins and pigments in the paint. It also avoids precipitation of resins and allows a uniform evaporation rate.
Up to 25%, in short oils, especially when they contain elements with little solubility in hydrocarbon solvents (white spirit).
Up to 5%, only in long oils.

In oilfield, it is a sustainable (biobased) alternative to fossil based solvents (BTX), it shows good perfomances to dissolve asphaltene and organic residues in well bore clean-outs, hydraulic fracturing and antisludge application.
