The heat transfer fluid market is in constant motion. To offer customers orientation and decision-making aids, FRAGOL will inform in this column about recent developments and
trends. We are currently focusing on these topics: 

Harmful CMR substances – high burden for plant operators

FRAGOL recommends replacing aromatic hydrocarbons with CMR classification

Aromatic hydrocarbons (AHC) are widely used as heat transfer fluids due to their thermal stability. A well-known example is the substance dibenzyltoluene (DBT), which is used in MARLOTHERM® SH, for example. However, the chemical properties of DBT are highly problematic for humans and nature: The substance is practically not degraded in the environment, is classified as CMR (carcinogenic, mutagenic or toxic to reproduction) and has recently been assigned to the highest water hazard class. 
Plant operators who use MARLOTHERM® SH must take a large number of restrictive protective and preventive measures and fulfill extensive labeling and information requirements. The effort for companies is already enormous – and will continue to grow. Anyone looking for a powerful and environmentally friendly alternative to DBT will find what they are looking for at FRAGOL.

No future for "eternity chemicals“


Companies that use cooling fluids based on perfluorinated and polyfluorinated alkyl substances (PFAS) are facing pressure. The days of PFAS are numbered. While restrictions were previously only in place for individual PFAS, a proposal from the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) now suggests a complete ban on all substance classes of the environmentally harmful "eternal chemicals". The consequences are serious: manufacturers of PFAS-based heat transfer fluids will soon stop producing the product lines they are using. Customers in the electronics industry are forced to replace PFAS-based cooling fluids such as 3M™ Novec™* with environmentally compatible alternative products. That's exactly what FRAGOL now offers.
