New family of reagents will increase ease of detecting fuel adulteration in the field.

Midland, MI - January 11, 2010

ANGUS™ Chemical Company is a leading global supplier of advanced petroleum marking technologies for the deterrence and detection of fuel adulteration today announced its launch of a new family of quaternary phosphonium hydroxide-based reagents for use with its market leading MORTRACE™ "S" Series fuel markers.  The new reagents enable fuel inspectors to quantify adulteration levels in the field without the need to perform an aqueous extraction of the marker chemical.  This saves the inspector time and eliminates the aqueous waste generated using the extraction method.

"This innovation is but one in a long line of advancements we have made in the petroleum marking and brand authentication area.  The new reagents take an already great MORTRACE product and make it faster and easier to use," said Steve Vogler, ANGUS global strategic marketing manager for Dyes and Markers.
