Puregas propellants are high purity unstenched butane and propane hydrocarbons, derived from the distillation of crude oil. It is essentially free of unsaturates, sulphurs and mercaptans as can be determined by their clean odour. Our propellants are certified to the highest quality for use in pharmaceutical, food, cosmetic, personal care and other aerosols.
Hydrocarbon propellants are available in a number of different pressure grades ranging from 2 bar to 7.8 bar gauge measured at 25ºC. The consistent high quality makes them suitable for use in odour sensitive aerosol products such as deodorants, anti-perspirants, perfume sprays, etc.
Unstenched butane is used in all foam blowing applications. The low-pressure properties are suitable for food packaging applications in flexible and foam packaging.
Our aerosol propellants are available in bulk road tankers or in 48kg cylinders; as well as 11 ton ISO tank containers for export. We currently supply the majority of the South African Aerosol industry with delivery across the country. We also export to Zimbabwe, Botswana, Tanzania and Mauritius.
