Sultaines: The Better Betaine

July 20, 2016

For decades Betaines have been used in a broad range of cleansing products from shampoos and body washes to bubble baths to facial cleansers. Betaines are known to provide mildness to sulfate systems and other formulations.

Betaines are widely used as they are well known, easy to formulate with and relatively inexpensive. We, at StarChem, manufacture various Betaines at our Wellford, South Carolina production facility. Building on one of our core company principles, “Our passion is innovation”, we strive to offer value-added solutions. As forward thinkers, we constantly look ahead to something better:  Sultaines!


Corrosion Control

StarChem (April 1, 2016)

A corrosion inhibitor reduces the corrosion rate of a metal exposed to the environment.  Inhibition is used with carbon steel pipes and vessels as an economic corrosion control alternative to stainless steels and alloys, coatings or non-metallic composites, and can often be implemented without disrupting a process.  StarChem is a specialty chemical manufacturer that produces many components used in the formulation of corrosion control products.  Our 50+ years of manufacturing, application and formulation experience has helped us to become a very innovative solutions provider to industries in search of specialty chemical solutions.  Please find our corrosion control components list below.  StarChem also specializes in customized solutions for our customers.  Please contact us with your specialty chemical needs.

StarChem introduces  StarFresh odor control technology.   StarFresh is not a deodorant that masks odor, but a technically advanced topical treatment that chemically absorbs gases from odor source over a period of time.  Originally this odor control technology was developed for working with fibers and textiles for commercial, residential, automotive, and home furnishing applications.  We are now introducing this technology to the consumer markets, in such applications as tissue, hygiene, diapers, and fabric care.
