Since 1966 Settala Gas is producing hydrocarbon aerosol propellants. The hydrocarbon propellants have been tested for a long time and are able to replace CFCs with many advantages:

  • They are organic products derived from natural gas
  • They do not pollute groundwater
  • GWP ground warming potential: negligible
  • ODP: ozone depletion potential: zero
  • They do not contribute to acid rain
  • They are not toxic or carcinogenic

The range of aerosol propellants is based on n-Butane, Propane and iso-Butane and covers all specific customer requirements in terms of pressure and formulation. The Purifair range varies from 1.2 bar to 7.3 bar pressure at 20°C.

All the intermediate pressures may be provided as Settala Gas is not only a distributor but a refinery specialized in the treatment of LPG for special purposes (excluding automotive and combustion) with facilities such as the distillation column as well as a renewed division for the deodorization with molecular sieves and a chemical laboratory able to follow the whole process and ensure the final product quality.

Demeon® D is an Akzo Nobel trade name for Dimethyl ether (DME). DME is a widely used propellant for aerosol products. DME offers unique advantages such as solvency power and water miscibility. Based on the flexibility in use offered by these advantages, DME is an appreciated propellant in many aerosol products like hairsprays and other cosmetic aerosol products, paint spray and various technical aerosol products.

Blowing Agents

Settala Gas has developed during the years the present know-how in the treatment of flammable gases and fluids and today is able to offer a large range of environment friendly blowing agents commonly used in the manufacturing of polyurethane and polystyrene foams widely employed as insulating material in the refrigeration and construction industry.

Settala Gas' blowing agents available are:

  • iso-Butane
  • n-Butane
  • Propane
  • Propylene
  • DME (Dimethyl Ether)
  • R134a (HFC)
  • N-Pentane
  • Cyclo-Pentane
  • Iso-Pentane

Settala Gas in able to supply the products pure or blended according to customer requirements. The blowing agents range is provided with a technical grade of purity, typically 95-98%. The deliveries can be managed through cylinders, drums, iso-tanks or tank-trucks.
