Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) processes agricultural crops into renewable products. ADM’s linseed oils, soybean oils, and copolymer oils are key components in paints and coatings, and printers’ inks and resins.

Products

  • Lecithin – Serves as an emulsifier to disperse pigments, and as a surfactant in industrial-based applications. Benefits include reduced mixing times, improved suspension, reduced sagging, improved brushability, and better flow.
  • Yelkin® TS. – A standard fluid lecithin used in oil-based paints and coatings
  • Stablec OFE – Specially formulated to emulsify in aqueous formulations
  • Xanthan Gum – A high performance suspension and thickening agent for various coatings applications
    • Optixan™ – Standard grade
    • Optixan™ D – Easy dispersing grade
    • Optixan™ T – Transparent grade
  • Propylene Glycol – bio-based

AL2Chem Specialties is a full service supplier of treated and untreated grades of amorphous fumed silica, precipitated silicas and flatting agents.

Products

  • Fumed Silicas – Fumed silica’s unique manufacturing process produces a very high purity type of silica with nano size primary particles, a fluffy white powder that is an amorphous and colloidal form of silica. These characteristics impart a wide range of benefits to formulations from thickening and reinforcement to free flow and anti-settling.
  • Flatting Agents – Flatting agents are silicas designed to modify the surface characteristics of paints and coatings to reduce gloss. They are highly dispersible and provide good leveling and suspension control, particularly the wax treated grades.
  • Precipitated Silicas – Precipitated silica is produced in a wet chemical process and the resulting amorphous products have a wide range of applications from thickening and reinforcement to free-flow and abrasion. They are highly absorptive, improve mechanical properties, and provide unique solutions for your formulating needs.
