Formaldehyde free reducing agents from Brüggemann enable solutions for the latest technical challenges of environmental awareness, rising quality demands, and improved application performance. Our products and techniques enable emulsion polymer producers to improve efficiency with more sustainable raw materials. All offer the following attributes:
Bruggolite® FF6 M is the first formaldehyde free sulfur based reducing agent which enables adherence to stringent regulatory requirements of emulsion polymers.
Recommended pH range 4-8. Effective as low as 20 °C for main and post polymerization.
Bruggolite® E28 offers improved performance for emulsion polymers requiring a reducing agent applied at a pH range of 2-4.
TP 1853 is a new formaldehyde free grade with wide pH and temperature range. It offers improved performance in vinyl acetate emulsion polymers.
Since 1926, Brüggemann has continuously manufactured Sodium Formaldehyde Sulfoxylate (SFS) in high volumes at our dedicated production facilities in Heilbronn, Germany.
Our historical relationship with customers has enabled us to optimize this industrial chemical for numerous applications with our high quality, low impurity products. We offer an entire portfolio of SFS based reducing agents, typically used for emulsion polymerization, mineral bleaching, and discharge printing.
Bruggolite® E01 (SFS) reducing agent is available as fast dissolving powder with excellent water solubility or dust-free granular solid form. Suitable for use in acidic and alkaline environments.
Reducing Agent TP 1648 is a new, advanced grade of SFS. This replacement grade enables 50% formaldehyde reduction in typical applications. Supplied in dust-free micro granular form.
Bruggolite® L40 (40%), L35 (35%), and NO 5 (40%) are aqueous solutions of SFS supplied in polyethylene drums, IBC totes, or tankers for customers that prefer not to dissolve solid SFS on site. Bruggolite® NO 5 offers reduced odor.
This unique SFS based reducing agent in powder form is used to stabilize solutions and preparations in the pharmaceutical industry. Certified to meet US pharmacopeia requirements.
Our unique sulfur-based, water-soluble antioxidants successfully prevent discoloration of emulsion polymers caused by high temperature and oxygen exposure. VOC and formaldehyde free.
TP 1605 is an antioxidant for water-based emulsion polymers and solid polymers.
Nothing comes from nothing.
For this reason, we invest in extensive research and development.
Close to the market and always a bit ahead of the future.
