Zeolites

You can now have high quality Zeolites for your formulations!

© Zeolites are widely used as catalysts in the refining of crude oil into finished petroleum products.  Zeolites can be uniquely tailored to specific applications.  Zeolites are also increasingly finding use in the production of petrochemicals, often replacing environmentally unfriendly catalysts. 

Unlike more hazardous acid catalysts that have been used in the past, zeolites are non-hazardous, regenerable, and non-corrosive. 

PQ Corporation has been actively involved in development and production of zeolite products for more than 25 years.  Their detergent grade zeolite, VALFOR® 100, has been successfully serving the detergent market since the early 1980’s.  PQ’s VALFOR® 100 zeolite has been the primary builder for phosphate-free detergents.  The product provides ion exchange, physical property, and processing benefits for powder detergents. 

More recently, PQ introduced a new line of ADVERA® specialty zeolite products designed to meet changing and increasingly sophisticated market demands.  ADVERA® specialty zeolites are used in a variety of applications in which zeolites provide molecular sieving, adsorption, separation, ion exchange, desiccation, water release, and filler/carrier functions. 

ADVERA® specialty zeolites are an important part of the plastics and polymers industry where they act as excellent co-stabilizers for PVC and other applications.  Advera® WMA is part of a new green technology to produce and place asphalt mix at temperatures  50° to  70° F lower than traditional hot mix asphalt.  This means lower emissions, reduced energy use, improved workability, and road compaction.
