Specialty Solvents


Production of Resolute Oil's MaxSol specialty solvents begins with a robust source of Pennsylvania-grade crude that undergoes a hydrotreatment process to enhance color and improve odor characteristics while retaining excellent solvency properties that are critical to many applications and formulations.

We created the MaxSol product line for our customers in the graphic arts, resin, and allied industries to serve as the primary solvent component in heatset lithographic paste inks and pigment flushes. Also, compatibility with a variety of resin systems allows optimal performance of MaxSol when incorporated into resin solutions and vehicle formulations.

MaxSol has also found use in specialty applications such as metalworking fluids, additive carriers, caulks, and paper defoamers.

MaxSol specialty solvents are offered in a variety of distillation ranges and are available in bulk tanker truck and railcar quantities.
