FUEL ADDITIVES FOR OPTIMUM PROTECTION & DETECTION
Dow is not only well-versed in gas treating chemistries, but also hosts an array of fuel additives critical for fuel identification and protection against microbial build up. Dow’s biocides are critical for maintaining the integrity of fuels at all points during storage, distribution and usage. Left untreated, fuels are susceptible to bacterial and fungal contamination that can impact fuel performance properties. We also offer fuel markers and dyes that help with fuel identification, leak detection and distribution quality.
Protecting Your Systems
KATHON™ FP and FUELSAVER™ are effective microbiocides for use at low levels which protect against microbial species commonly encountered in fuel systems, including bacteria, yeast, and mold. Read more.
Markers for Fuel Identification
Fuel markers help to identify fuels for branding, unauthorized usage or theft, and other purposes, as well as helping distribution quality. MORTRACE™, SPECTRACE™ & ACCUTRACE™ Fuel Markers are miscible in fuels, impart little color to the fuel but can be easily detected by extraction procedures.
Dow’s AUTOMATE™ Solvent-Soluble Dyes are used to color fuels, solvents and lubricants for product differentiation and to aid in leak detection. Their easy to use formulations allow them to be completely miscible in hydrocarbons.
