Versatile Metal Ion Chelates

Versatile Products and Advanced Technical Services to Control Metal Ions

Uncontrolled metal ions - iron, copper, manganese, calcium, and others - in your product or process can accelerate chemical reactions that lead to loss of product and equipment downtime.

In finished consumer products, metal ions can cause degradation, discoloration, precipitation, emulsion instability, rancidity, and other issues that compromise quality and performance. In process applications, metal ions can cause scaling, degradation, and unwanted chemical reactions, leading to downtime for equipment maintenance and replacement.

Chelates, also referred to as chelating agents or chelants, can be added to finished consumer products and in processes to address these issues and improve overall sustainability of operations.

They can also be used to enhance the performance of products, like vitamins and plant micronutrients.

VERSENE™, VERSENOL™ and VERSENEX™ Chelates address these challenges across applications, from cleaning, personal care, food and beverage to pulp and paper processing and agriculture.

We recognize technical support is critical to optimizing the performance of a chelating agent in your unique application. This is why we offer complimentary services to customers, including:

  • Ongoing technical support from our experienced team
  • Formulation support with high-throughput capabilities
  • Sophisticated PIMIC™ Computer Modeling Service
  • Exclusive METAL SIGNATURE™ Analytical Service for pulp and paper customers
