What is an Aliphatic Solvent?
Aliphatic solvents also known as aliphatic compounds, do not contain a benzene ring. They are mixtures of saturated, long straight-chain, branched-chain, or cyclic paraffins. They are produced by the distillation process of crude oil by the appropriate boiling point range fraction, and then they are treated to improve both their color and odor.
Typically composed of Hydrogen and Carbon molecules, they differ from aromatic solvents because they don't contain a hydrocarbon like toluene or xylene.
At RB Products, we specialize in the manufacture of aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents. The RB AroFree line of aliphatic hydrocarbon solvents are extremely low in aromatic (< 1%) and sulfur levels (< 1ppm) and water white in color. We offer both fully saturated paraffinic as well as unsaturated olefinic versions for use as reaction intermediates.
- High Absorbancy with Organic Matter
- Very Versatile, can be used in many industries
- Very Low Water Solubility
- Less Toxic than Aromatic Solvents
