PQ Zeolites: Zeocros, Doucil and Advera

PQ Corporation has been actively involved in development and production of zeolite products for more than 25 years. We continue to strengthen our reputation for quality by producing zeolites that meet our customers’ requirements and by providing services that fulfill their expectations.

Doucil zeolites are engineered to produce the optimum particle structure for today's laundry formulations. In addition to the widely used zeolite 4A, PQ produces DOUCIL MAP a proprietary range of products based on the zeolite P structure. These deliver improved water-softening capacity and also have superior liquid carrying capacity and improved compatibility with modern bleach systems. Doucil zeolites are also used as anti-caking agent in powder detergents.

Beyond detergent applications, Zeocros zeolites find use as opacifiers and fillers in paper manufacture and surface coatings. Zeocros specialty zeolites are an important part of the plastics and polymers industry where they act as excellent co-stabilizers for PVC and other applications.

Advera WMA is part of a new green technology to produce and place asphalt mix at temperatures 30° to 40° C lower than traditional hot mix asphalt. This means lower emissions, reduced energy use, improved workability and road compaction. For more information, go to Advera.

Zeolites are widely used as catalysts in the refining of crude oil into finished petroleum products. The properties of zeolites uniquely suit them for tailoring to specific applications. Zeolites are also increasingly finding use in the production of petrochemicals, often replacing environmentally unfriendly catalysts. Unlike more hazardous acid catalysts that have been used in the past, zeolites are non-hazardous, regenerable, and non-corrosive.
