We ensure the sale of ethanol to licensed ethanol is done according to the process set out by SARS and that all paperwork is correctly handled and stored.

Denatured Ethanol: A denaturant is added to the ethanol to discourage human consumption and thereby proving, by chemical means, that the product is not being used in the manufacture of potable alcoholic beverages. We are experts at denaturing ethanol to render it unfit for human consumption but suitable for your specific application. This negates having to be licenced but gives customers access high purity ethanol for use in their formulations.
