Important raw materials used in large-scale chemical production
Piperazine is a cyclic ethylene amine with two secondary amine groups. Piperazine 68 %, more commonly known as "piperazine flakes" is supplied with 68 % active content diluted with water (PIP 68%). Piperazine is commonly used as a raw material for several commercially available drugs. Other possible application fields include polyamides, gas sweetening and as an intermediate in PU catalysts.
High-boiling polyethylene polyamines mixture. Chemical Composition: A mixture of tetraethylenepentamine (TEPA), pentaethylenehexamine (PEHA), hexaethyleneheptamine (HEHA) and higher molecular weight products.
Reaction mass of 2,2',2''-nitrilotriethanol and 2,2'-[[2-[(2-hydroxyethyl)amino]ethyl]imino]bisethanol and 2,2'-iminodiethanol. BA-10 contains a high level of TEA (triethanolamine) and is mainly used as a grinding agent for cement to reduce energy consumption.
Aminoethylethanolamine (AEEA) is a linear molecule with primary and secondary amine groups. AEEA appears as a colorless liquid, but with slightly higher viscosity than EDA and DETA. It is used as an intermediate in the fabrication of detergents, fabric softeners, chelates, fuel additives and coatings.
DEG-Mix is a mix of diethylene glycol, monoethylene glycol, triethylene glycol and water. Its main application is as a raw material for grinding aids.
Monoethylene glycol is a colorless liquid with low volatility and is extremely hygroscopic. MEG is miscible with water, alcohols, aldehydes, ketones and esters. Monoethylene glycol can be used as an intermediate in the production of solvents and resins or as a building block in PET to produce fibers. Furthermore, MEG is commonly used as a raw material for antifreeze fluids.
Triethylenetetramine (TETA) is a colorless to light-yellow liquid containing linear, branched and cyclic molecules. TETA is mainly used in the manufacture of fuel oil additives, lubricating oil additives and epoxy curing agents. It is also used in the production of asphalt additives.
Berolamine-20 (BA-20) is a blend of higher polyethylene polyamines (approx. 55% of which isomers of TETA, TEPA, PEHA, and higher) and alkanolamines (approx. 45% of which AEEA, DEA, Hydroxyethyl DETA, and higher). BA-20 is used as an intermediate in the manufacture of asphalt additives, in polyamide resins and corrosion inhibitors. It is also used as a cement grinding agent and flotation agent.
Berolamine-505 (BA-505) is an amine blend containing about 60% HEP, 15% AEP and 30% AEEA. BA-505 is commonly used as an asphalt additive.
Ethylenediamine (EDA; 1,2-diaminoethane) is the ethyleneamine with the lowest molecular weight. It contains two primary amine groups and appears as a colorless liquid. Ethylenediamine is a highly reactive and versatile molecule. It is commonly used as an intermediary to produce detergents, paper chemicals, textile auxiliaries, fungicides and polyamides.
Diethylenetriamine (DETA) is another aliphatic ethylene amine with two primary and one secondary amine groups. Just like EDA, DETA presents itself as a clear, colorless liquid. Typical application areas of diethylenetriamine include chelating agents, wet-strength resins, lubricant oil additives, oil field chemicals and polyamides for resins or epoxy curing agents.
N-Methylpiperazine (NMP) is another cyclic ethylene amine which appears as a clear, hygroscopic liquid. NMP is primarily used as raw material for pharmaceuticals.
Piperazine is a cyclic ethylene amine with two secondary amine groups. Piperazine is supplied as Piperazine 99 %, more commonly known as "anhydrous piperazine". Piperazine is commonly used as a raw material for several commercially available drugs. Other possible application fields include polyamides, gas sweetening and as an intermediate in PU catalysts.
XA-70 is a polyamine blend with unique characteristics. XA-70 has been developed specifically as an epoxy curing agent but its usage can be extended to mineral processing aids and corrosion inhibitors.
