SBPs such as Heptane consist of paraffins and cycloparaffins in the C6-C10 range. Thanks to their simple composition, narrow boiling point solvents provide predictable and consistent evaporation behaviour that is important in many uses and applications. Our SBPs also have very low total aromatics and benzene content, with virtually undetectable levels of polycyclic aromatics.
Heptane is a colourless fluid with a low odour and a medium, very narrow boiling range, offering a combination of relatively low odour and quick drying. Its ability to dissolve many organic compounds and evaporate easily means it is used as a solvent or diluent in a wide range of industrial and professional applications.
Key application areas include polymerisation processes, specialist coatings and adhesives, pharmaceutical and laboratory extraction processes, industrial cleaning and degreasing, textile and rubber manufacturing and catalyst preparation.
Shell Chemicals Heptane is manufactured to high standards required to produce a hydrocarbon fluid that offers consistent quality and performance, including feed selection for a consistent composition and a deep hydrogenation process that minimises impurities.
The n-Hexane content of our Heptane is also very low and consistent, reducing occupational exposure and simplifying control measures.
