We produce Pinus resins selected according to the environmental management standards for the manufacture of pitch and turpentine, raw materials of great versatility in products such as varnishes, paints, adhesives and enamels.
Pitch: Pitch is a transparent yellow solid, produced from pine resinous secretions. It is composed of abietic acid (main component) and used for applications of products such as glues, adhesives, soaps, enamels, electrical insulators, chewing gum, waxes and expectorants.
Applications: printing inks, paper glue, adhesives, emulsifiers, rubbers and other segments, among them, cosmetics, soaps, detergents and food industries such as chewing gum.

Turpentine: The type of turpentine obtained by Irani is gum resin. Turpentine is a clear liquid with a typical odor and bitter taste. It is used as a solvent in paints and varnishes and to manufacture dyes, waxes, disinfectants (pine oil), camphor, soaps, insecticidal greases, seals, perfume fixatives, among others.
Applications: Because it consists of aromatic cyclic, turpentine is used as a raw material for the industrialization of a large number of products, such as terpenyl acetate, isobornyl, terpineol acetate, which are used in the fragrances and perfumery industry. The “pine” disinfectants that have germicidal action lead in their formulation, the pine oil from the industrialization of turpentine. In the fine chemicals industry, turpentine is used for vitamins, natural insecticidal components, resins for special glues, among others. Its use extends to solvents for special paints as well as in the pharmaceutical area.
