Seatex is able to deliver industrial chemicals of any complexity, ranging from simple compounds (e.g. free-flowing, non-foaming) to dangerous formulations, such as flammable or toxic materials. We pride ourselves on our custom services that may demand non-standard equipment or unique capabilities. 

We perform custom chemical blending that meets any and all specialty chemical requirements, including:

  • Custom particle sizes to as small as 10 microns
  • Distribution through advanced milling techniques
  • Solid/liquid incorporations
  • Complete molecular change

We Handle Even the Toughest Custom Chemical Requirements

Heated Products

For any performance product that requires the addition of heat to achieve your goal, our facilities can accommodate atmospheric reactions up to 400 degrees. In our jacketed tanks and heated shakers, we can use any combination of heating and cooling to reach the right temperature profile for your blended or reacted products.

Flammable Materials

Whether you need to lower a formulation’s freezing point without watering it down, or you need a solvent to allow for pumping a product, a flammable additive such as ethanol is often the best option. With our brand new flammable blending facility, our ability to safely and cost-effectively handle BTEX (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, xylene) and other hazardous materials is second to none.

Molecular Change Reactions

As a one-stop-shop chemical manufacturer, we handle true specialty chemistry just as readily as simple mixing. When your formulation’s specs call for complex science, we have the tools and the expertise to produce singular compounds while managing their unique reactions and necessary environments.

Scrubbing and Gas-off

Government bodies and consumers alike demand chemical products that are environmentally friendly, both in their production and their application. In our processes, we effectively scrub VOCs and other unwanted byproducts through negative pressure space inside our tanks. We commonly neutralize ammonia, although we are able to scrub many different types of harmful or unwanted gases that may be generated during molecular changes.

Specialty Equipment for Specialty Chemical Manufacturing

We can deliver and perform molecular change reactions, solid-liquid incorporations, flammables, specialty products like ammonia derivatives, and more thanks to our cutting-edge specialty equipment.

Seatex Specialty Chemicals in Action

These are just a few examples of ways that Seatex has met the unique needs of our customers:

Stateside Service for a Foreign-based Vendor

On multiple occasions, international companies have engaged Seatex to be their domestic manufacturer of specialty chemicals:

Serving a Secondary Manufacturer

A long standing customer was looking to diversify their supply chain for a large-volume reactionary product, one that required advanced technical capability.

Once the chemistry had been jointly reviewed and capital approved, we secured the necessary equipment and scaled to production batches in less than three months.
