From its foundation S.A. DABEER has been dedicated to the manufacturing of Sequestering Agents and Chelated Micronutrients. In the year 1985 the company signed a representation contract with the Italian firm GIOVANNI BOZZETTO S.p.a. to commercialise its range of phosphonates SEQUION in Spain and Portugal.
The company currently employs 42 people and has a turnover of over 9 million EUROS. Our clients include over 400 companies world-wide. I many countries S.A. DABEER counts on the collaboration of representing companies. The growth of the company as well as that of its representatives has been possible thanks to the effort carried out in the search for new markets, new applications, in offering quality products and to S.A. DABEER’s wish to transmit technical knowledge of our products and its applications to clients and representatives – this latter task carried out by our technical department.
In 1999 S.A. DABEER obtaind the quality certificate UN-EN-ISO 9001 reaffirming its commitment acquired with its clients to satisfy their needs and expectations of the future.

The presence of metal ions, even in traces, is enough to alter the physical and chemical properties of a product or process. For exemple the presence of copper or iron for instance, act as oxidation cataysts on fats and oils (rancidification); traces of heavy metals will also reduce the effectiveness of bleaching agents. Water used in appliances suchs as: heat exchangers or evaporators causes problems due to the effect of calcium and magnesium that act as
precipitant agents on the metal surfaces and thus lead to a loss of effectiveness and life shortening the apparatus.
To solve these problems DABEER has developed the DABEERSEN range of products. These products chelate agents are molecules containing the amino and carboxylic groups. The principal characteristics
of aminocarboxylic derivatives are as follows:
Stable a high temperatures
Hydrolitic stability in an acid and alkaline conditions
Forms stable chelates with most metallic
ions in a wide range of pH and temperatures
Soluble in water
Inert to most chemical and bacterial agents
Chelate” is derived from the Greek “CHELE” meaning crab or lobster claw. In these complexes the metal atom is trapped in the structure of the compound by various atoms of the chelate or sequestering agent and from which they are difficulty released by other substances (fig.1).
