Performance is the key: IMWITOR® 2025
16. August 2021
A standstill means a setback! That is why progress is our goal. That may sound like a cliché, but it is a top priority on the agenda at IOI Oleo: More performance? No problem! We are seldom satisfied and always refine our products to meet the needs of our customers, the consumers or the market.
Research and development are important components for supporting our customers with future growth and keeping or even expanding relevant products on the market. We are fully committed to providing you with perfect products! It is our job to develop solutions that are tailored to your individual needs so that your customers can ultimately benefit from them!
Customer and market requirements for better processability of our diacetyl tartaric acid esters have inspired us to enhance our emulsifier IMWITOR® 2020. The viscosity was to be reduced in order to significantly improve the pumpability of the product. Another aim was the processing at lower temperatures during the production process, which results in lower energy costs on the one hand and prevents the unintentional decomposition of heat-sensitive products on the other.
Well, clear the stage!
We proudly present our new product
IMWITOR® 2025 is a diacetyltartaric acid ester (DATEM) classified under E472e (mono- and diacetyltartaric acid ester of mono- and diglycerides of fatty acids) within the same legal parameters and labelling regulations as our well-known IMWITOR® 2020. Our latest development has the same positive properties as IMWITOR ® 2020 but ensures significantly better application. Performance is the key:
Performance is the key! The advantages of the IMWITOR® 2025 summarized:
- Easier processing due to reduced viscosity
- Improved pumpability
Reduction of process temperatures during production
- Better miscibility with other products
