They are designed to make formulating new products easier and to reduce unnecessary ingredient inventories. These concentrated (no water) formulations can be used as starting points for numerous retail and industrial products. Our Citrus Burst® line is formulated with the environment in mind and all products are nonyl-phenol free (no NP-surfactants), ODC free (no ozone depleting chemicals), HAP free (no hazardous air pollutants). Citrus Burst® 1 is a concentrated blend of D-Limonene, citrus components, and surfactant. It is ideally suited for general purpose cleaners and degreasers, and it can be diluted with water to make stable, milkywhite emulsions. It can also be used to formulate multiple household and industrial cleaning products and blends well with other ingredients to make more complex product formulations. Citrus Burst® 2 is a concentrated blend of D-Limonene, citrus components, and surfactant. It has a high concentration of D-Limonene, making it better for applications requiring more solvent cleaning power. Citrus Burst® 2 is ideal for cleaning applications where a water rinse is required. Citrus Burst® 2 can be diluted with water at time of use or blended with other solvents to fine tune the formulation. Citrus Burst® 3 is a one-step answer for formulating clear industrial and household cleaners with high concentrations of water. The concentrated formulation is made with the latest plant-based surfactant technology. Products made with Citrus Burst® 3 can be tinted to any color. The product can be used as a starter or base to make a wide variety of household or industrial products. Citrus Burst® 7 is a patented formulation of D-Limonene and natural, plant-derived esters. This product has high solvency and can be used for heavy-duty degreasing and industrial cleaning applications. It dries with little residue or can be rinsed with water. All components in Citrus Burst® 7 are Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) by the FDA. Citrus Burst® 8 is a unique blend of vegetable esters, citrus terpenes, and surfactants. With its high flash point (>142°), it is ideal for parts cleaning and heavy degreasing applications. The product is very effective at removing crude oil, tar, and asphalt. It can be rinsed with water or diluted at the time of use to make a time release macroemulsion. Citrus Burst® 100 is an industrial cleaner and degreaser made with plant-based solvents formulated with low VOC technology. This product penetrates heavy grease, oil, petroleum oil and can be diluted for degreasing, steam cleaning, and power washing. Its high flash point (201°F) makes the formula safe for parts cleaners. This product is certified as a Clean Air Solvent by the South Coast Air Quality Management District. CitruSoy® Product Line Our citrus and soybean-based formulations are designed for many types of industrial cleaning applications. These bio-based alternative solvents have excellent chemical properties, a pleasant citrus fragrance and offer many environmental benefits. Our CitruSoy® line is 100% bio-based, ODC free (no ozone depleting chemicals), HAP free (no hazardous air pollutants) and contain no petroleum-based solvents. CITRUSoy® High Flash is a combination of D-Limonene and soy methyl ester with a flash point greater than 140°F, making it ideal for parts washing and general degreasing applications requiring a nonflammable solvent. CITRUSoy® Super High Flash is a solvent based on soy methyl ester with a light citrus fragrance. It is ideal for applications requiring a flash point greater than 200°F.

Essential oils and FTNF citrus fractions are cold-pressed and distilled to produce the highest quality natural products.. The process begins with fruit pressing to extract the juice from the fruit and the oil from the rind. This oil is cold pressed orange oil. The cold pressed orange oil is vacuum distilled to recover folded oils and citrus fractions used in flavor and fragrance applications. Product List Fresh Notes Citrus Flavor & Fragrance Fractions Fresh Notes® are specialty citrus fractions for flavor and fragrance applications. Octanal Linalool Nonanal Decanal a-Terpineol Dodecanal Valencene Cadinene Sesquiterpenes Sinensals Nootkatone Light Fraction Fresh Notes Citrus Extracts Terpene-Free Extracts Terpeneless Orange Oil (Organic Certified fractions are also available) Essential Citrus Oils Essential Citrus Oils are extracted from FTNF citrus for use in a large number of applications. One of our most popular citrus oil products is cold-pressed orange oil, which is a food grade product that is used in the flavor and fragrance industry. This oil is an ingredient in fruit flavors and floral perfume blends. Cold-pressed orange oil contains over 90% D-Limonene. It is a common additive to many products requiring citrus fragrance because of the sweet and fresh notes of the product.

Material Safety Data Sheets
We anticipate that the 2012 Atlantic basin hurricane season will have reduced activity compared with the 1981-2010 climatology. The tropical Atlantic has anomalously cooled over the past several months, and it appears that the chances of an El Nino event this summer and fall are relatively high. We anticipate a below-average probability for major hurricanes making landfall along with United States coastline and in the Caribbean. However, coastal residents are reminded that it only takes one hurricane making landfall to make it an active season for them, and they need to prepare the same for every season, regardless of how much activity is predicted.

In July of 1942, Florida Molasses, the company’s original name, stood on only 11 acres of land in Lake Alfred. When Bert Shulz moved Florida Chemical Company to 351 Winter Haven Blvd N.E., he perhaps never could have envisioned that his property holdings would increase to nearly 35 of prime industrial acreage. Seventy years later, in October, 2011, Florida Chemical Company purchased 23 additional acres across the road from their current location. Josh Snively, president of the company said, “This new expansion will give us greater logistical flexibility. It will increase our overall productivity, and that is good for everybody, especially our customers.” Two buildings already on the property, one 16,000 sq. ft., the other 34,000 sq. ft. will be renovated for office space, storage, and maintenance. Work has already begun to add necessary fire repression systems, and the maintenance shop is currently operational. Plans have been drawn up for the renovation of the office space, and material will begin to be stored in one of the buildings in June.
