Lamp oils: Plant-based methyl esters as alternatives to paraffin oils Plant-based methyl esters require no special labelling and can be used as renewable alternatives to paraffin oils. They are clear like water, odour-free, and have longer than average burning periods. We can supply them from stock, loose or in IBCs. BergaSolv IPL: a solvent from our new stainless steel tank Berg + Schmidt will now supply the printing ink industry with BergaSolv IPL. The isopropyl laurate acts as a natural solvent and replaces the products based on crude oil. BergaSolv IPL has full registration and is available from the tank or in IBCs from Ouderkerk (Rotterdam). New thermostable coconut methyl ester for the lubricants industry Berg + Schmidt is the exclusive supplier of methyl esters based on coconut to the European market. A new thermostable variant has now been developed to meet the special needs of the lubricants industry. BergaLub T900: the cost-optimized alternative to TMP esters based on caprylic acid for the lubricants industry For 20 years the production of medium-chain triglycerides, known as BergaBest MCT Oil, has constituted the core of ester production at Berg + Schmidt. The existing range has now been extended to include a less expensive but functional alternative based on pelargonic acid. BergaLub T900 is available on both a vegetable and a synthetic basis. New in the range: saturated complex esters with high viscosities Berg + Schmidt is responding to the increasing demand for complex esters with its new BergaLub series. The triple esters have excellent biodegradability and constitute a less expensive alternative to products based on isostearic acid. Applications are mainly in the marine industry and in hydraulic fluids.
