Perstorp to Begin Production of 1,6-hexanediol Owing to Growing Market Demand

Published on 2012-08-01. Author : SpecialChem

Perstorp now expands their already extensive offer for resin producers with 1,6-hexanediol. The company is now producing substantial volumes to meet the growing market demand.

Demand for 1,6-hexanediol is increasing thanks to continued growth in applications such as coatings, sealants, polyurethane elastomers and printing inks where the product is a key building block.

"We aim to help support this growth and broaden our platform, to better serve our customers in Europe," says MÃ¥rten Olausson, Perstorp Business Unit Manager Caprolactones. "The product represents an ideal complement to our already wide portfolio for resin production."

Perstorp has now started production after several years' development of a proprietary technology. Perstorp's 1,6-hexanediol offers resin producers a product of highest quality.

"As a leading supplier to the polyurethanes and coatings industries, we are pleased to now support our customers going forward with substantial capacities of 1,6-hexanediol," Olausson concludes.
