KRATON launches innovative Sylvasolv™ Biobased oils product line

26 Feb 2024

Kraton Corporation, a leading global sustainable producer of specialty polymers and high-value biobased products derived from pine wood pulping co-products, announces the launch of SYLVASOLV™, a new line of biobased hydrocarbon oils designed to deliver superior performance and environmental advantages across many industries, including agrochemicals, adhesives, and lubricants. The first product in the line, SYLVASOLV 1000, has been specifically developed to meet the unique functional needs of the agriculture industry, finding use in fertilizer coatings and crop protection.

“We are excited to introduce SYLVASOLV biobased oils to the market,” said Lana Culbert, Kraton Senior Director of Global Marketing. “The launch of SYLVASOLV 1000 further demonstrates Kraton’s commitment to providing sustainable, high-performance alternatives to petroleum-based products. This 100% biobased oil can improve fertilizer coating formulations and enable a reduced carbon footprint. *”

SYLVASOLV 1000 can be used in various fertilizer coating applications to effectively control dust and provide anti-caking properties during handling, transportation, storage, and use. Additionally, SYLVASOLV 1000 is suitable for oil-based adjuvants in various pesticide formulations, providing good wetting and penetration properties to enhance pesticide efficacy.

The SYLVASOLV product line is derived from Crude Tall Oil (CTO), a by-product of the Kraft pulp industry, and is sourced from responsibly managed forests and non-genetically modified trees that do not compete with food crops or require land use change. In addition to its sustainability attributes, SYLVASOLV oils have excellent solvency power, which can enhance formulation optionality, enabling lower viscosity and safer handling due to their low-temperature properties.
