Lamberti Adjuvants for the Agro Market

  1. 1. USA the value of custom-made chemistry Adjuvants for the Agro Market Don Leming September 2008 Property of Lamberti USA
  2. 2. Introduction: Lamberti Group • The Lamberti Group headquarters are in Gallarate (Italy) about 40 kms North of Milan and 10 minutes' drive from Malpensa international Airport. • The main Production facilities, the Technological Centre and Logistics Offices are located in Albizzate (Italy). • Lamberti S.p.A., founded in 1911, leads the Group which achieved a sales turnover of approx. Euro 370 million in 2007. • The Group's 1200 employees are distributed among Production, R&D, Sales and Services.
  3. 3. Group Technologies Lamberti produces a broad range of specialty chemicals for a large variety of industries and applications. Our Portfolio includes five Technological Areas: NATURAL POLYMERS FINE CHEMICALS BIOTECHNOLOGIES • Carboxymethylcelluloses • Dyes & Pigments • Enzyme Derivatives • Guar Derivatives • Photoinitiators • PVC Stabilizers SYNTHETIC POLYMERS OLEOCHEMICALS • Acrylic Polymers • Oleochemical Derivatives • Polyurethanes • Surfactants • Esters

  5. 5. USA New Generation of Anionic Surfactants Property of Lamberti USA
  6. 6. USA EUCAROL AGE Lamberti has created a new generation of anionic surfactants called EUCAROL AGE, characterised by good biological efficacy and environment friendly performance. The range includes: EUCAROL AGE SS ( Disodium Cocopolyglucose Sulfosuccinate) EUCAROL AGE EC ( Disodium Cocopolyglucose Citrate ) EUCAROL AGE ET ( Sodium Cocopolyglucose Tartrate ) DERIVED FROM NATURAL, RENEWABLE RAW MATERIALS GOOD BIOLOGICAL PERFORMANCE BOTH AS BUILT-IN AND TANK MIX MILD TO THE SKIN AND ADJUVANT NON-IRRITATING FOR THE EYES FREE FROM DIOXANE, BIODEGRADABLE, ETHYLENE OXIDE AND NOT HARMFUL FOR NITROSAMINE PRECURSORS THE ENVIRONMENT

  8. 8. USA EUCAROL AGE EUCAROL AGE are free from Ethylene Oxide, 1,4 Dioxane e Nitrosamines, toxic impurities present in standard surfactants. Shown below are the simplified chemical structure of EUCAROL AGE SS compared with a traditional ethoxylated fatty alcohol sulfosuccinate. The polyoxyethylene chain, which is the hydrophylic part in the traditional molecule and can generate free EO and 1,4 dioxane, is substituted by glucose units. Moreover, differently from common amphoteric surfactants, EUCAROL AGE does not contain nitrogen atoms, precursor of nitrosamines.

  9. 9. USA EUCAROL AGE CHEMICAL-PHYSICAL PROPERTIES • The low surface tension at the Critical Micelle Concentration (CMC) highlights the effectiveness of the products as surface- active agents • CMC value is low compared with other anionic surfactants; i.e. lower concentration of monomers – surface-active molecules not associated in micelles which leads to lower toxicity
