ESTI CHEM has pioneered the use of ESTISOL® ester-based solvents in industrial degreasers as alternative to hydrocarbon solvents. Along with the introduction of ESTISOL® esters, we have developed a range of ESTISURF® surfactants, which are applied in the formulation of industrial cleaning agents. Formulators may build their own formulations based on these components.
However, some industries are large consumers of hydrocarbon solvents and they do not have formulation experience themselves. For such customers, ESTI CHEM has a handful of ESTICLEAN® products available, which can be applied as cleaning agents without further modification.
For the road construction industry, we offer two products, which have gained market acceptance in many countries:
Vegetable-based release agent with additional cleaning properties applied as alternative to diesel fuel and other hydrocarbon fluids.
ESTICLEAN AS-VEG has a low odour, a high flash point, zero VOC content, and no GHS labelling.
A water-miscible release agent to be applied as an additive to the water used on the rollers used at road construction operations.
ESTICLEAN AS-AQUA secures formation of a uniform water film on the roller, and it reduces the water consumption.
For the EPS (Expandable PolyStyrene) industry, we have a special solution with tailor-made solvent properties:
This is an excellent alternative to acetone for application in the EPS industry in the production of boxes for food, insulation panels etc.
ESTICLEAN 159 cleans the molds from PS build-up without damaging the surface quality, it has a high flash point, and it is free from GHS labelling.
For heavy-duty degreasing - a unique solution is presented by ESTI CHEM:
ESTICLEAN AR-PLUS MB:
This is optimized water-in-oil microemulsion based natural esters, polar solvents, and wetting agents with zero VOC content.
ESTICLEAN AR-PLUS MB is based on ESTI CHEMs unique microemulsion technology and it is particularly formulated for heavy-duty cleaning. It is a trouble shooter that can be applied in many areas, where customers are looking for alternatives to pure hydrocarbon solvents to remove bitumen spots and other “black & sticky” contaminants.
It is safe to use on painted surface as well as on rubber and plastic parts.

FAQ about ESTICLEAN®
What can ESTICLEAN products offer to the EPS molding industry?
ESTICLEAN 159 is an excellent mold cleaner for the EPS industry, it replaces flammable solvents such as acetone, and is an efficient alternative to mechanical cleaning, which may damage the mold.
When would I consider using ESTICLEAN products?
You may not want to make your own formulation, you may not have the equipment for blending & filling of chemicals, or your expertise is in technical skills such as road construction and EPS molding of packaging/insulation materials – not in chemical formulations.
You may have a very good road to the market, you may sell other materials and services to the industry, and you see the opportunity for an add-on business to what you are doing today.
What can ESTICLEAN offer to the road construction industry?
Esti Chem offers a full range of asphalt cleaners and release agents for the road construction industry. The products have been used successfully for more than 15 years as alternatives to diesel and other mineral oil-based products.
By changing to ESTICLEAN products, you can remove hazardous chemicals from the working environment, you can reduce the risk for pollution of the environment, and you can reduce the consumption of chemicals by changing to non-evaporating materials.
The ESTICLEAN products are primarily produced on vegetable raw material basis and will help to reduce your CO2 footprint and improve the sustainability profile of your company.
