Arkema offers a range of linear and tertiary mercaptans, used primarily as chain transfer agents to control molecular weight, as antioxidants, or in polymerization.
Arkema’s linear mercaptans, including Normal Octyl Mercaptan (NOM) and Normal Dodecyl Mercaptan (NDM), are used primarily in the plastics and rubber industry as a chain tranfer agent (CTA) during the polymerization process of various materials (PMMA, ABS acrylics, and more). They can also be used as building blocks for high performance antioxidants.
The line of tertiary mercaptans include Tertiary Dodecyl Mercaptan (TDM), which is used in radical polymerization processes to control molecular weight in the manufacturing of SBR latex and styrene based polymers. as well as for lubricant additives. Tertiary Nonyl Mercaptan (TNM) is used for making lubricant additives.
Hexylene Glycol or HG is an oxygenated solvent derived from acetone which has two alcohol functions. It has a low evaporation rate and it is completely miscible with water.
It is mainly used as a solvent or coupling agent. It is a potential substitute for glycol ethers. It is also an effective shrinkage reduction admixture or SRA for concrete and mortar. Hexylene glycol can also be used as a building block in chemical synthesis.
Hexylene glycol is a key solvent in many markets such as paints & coatings, metal working fluids, detergency, cosmetics & fragrances, textiles & leather.
As a water-based solution, Hydrazine Hydrate and its Derivatives are supplied by Arkema to be widely used as reducing agent, blowing agent, corrosion inhibitor, oxygen scavenger or intermediate of synthesis.
Our product found applications in various industrial sectors such as Water Treatment, Polymerization, Agrochemicals, and Pharmaceuticals.
