Always exploring applications for choline and other raw materials, Balchem manufactures and supplies solutions for a variety of industrial applications.
Oil & Natural Gas: Clay Stabilization
Choline chloride and choline bicarbonate offer more attractive, effective, and environmentally responsible clay stabilizers, which heighten production rates and lower costs for the oil and natural gas industry. The industry uses clay stabilizers to mitigate the challenges drilling and stimulation cause, including wellbore instability, cuttings disintegration, bit balling, fines migration, and permeability reduction.

Circuit Board Cleaning: Choline Hydroxide
As the demand for advanced printed circuit boards with smaller dimensions increases, manufacturers need chemical strippers and etchants to meet the challenges these complex electronic components create.
Our choline hydroxide is a cost effective and highly reliable stripping solvent used to remove unwanted photoresists from copper-clad printed circuit boards, which are used in virtually all electronic devices.
