Sipchem’s Acetic Anhydride (AAn) is a colorless liquid and is mostly used to manufacture cellulose acetate for textiles, plastics, photographic film, and a wide range of other applications. It plays a vital role as a reagent in manufacturing pharmaceuticals such as paracetamol and is used extensively as a bleach activator in washing powder.
Sipchem’s Acetic Acid (AA) is a colorless, water-miscible liquid. Its largest single use is in manufacturing Vinyl Acetate, followed by Acetic Anhydride, Purified Terephthalic Acid, and Ethyl Acetate, as well as in the production of Esters. Acetic Acid is also used to produce a wide range of inorganic salts such as sodium acetate, which is used as a food preservative.
Sipchem’s Butanediol (BDO) is a colorless, viscous, high boiling liquid used to manufacture plastics, elastic fibers and polyurethanes. It is also used as a feedstock in manufacturing a wide range of chemicals, including tetrahydrofuran, Polybutylene terephthalate, and Y-Butyrolactone.
Sipchem’s Caustic Soda (NaOH) is a liquid solution of Caustic Soda (50% strength) in water, which is widely used within the petrochemical and chemical industries as an additive, as well as a key processing raw material in other industries such as pulp and paper, soap, and detergents.
Sipchem’s Ethylene Dichloride (EDC) is used in the production of Vinyl Chloride Monomer, which, in turn, is used to Manufacture Polyvinyl Chloride. PVC is a versatile polymer used across a variety of applications in the construction, health care, electronics, and automotive sectors. These range from piping and cable insulation to windshield components. Our EDC is also used as an intermediate to manufacture other chlorinated or fluorinated compounds such as trichloroethane. These halogenated compounds are broadly used in industry as extraction solvents.
Sipchem’s Ethyl Acetate (EA) is a colorless, sweet-smelling volatile liquid, which has numerous applications as a solvent in inks, adhesives, and pharmaceuticals, and as a carrier solvent for herbicides. High purity Ethyl Acetate is used in the electronics industry.
Sipchem’s Gamma-Butyrolactone (GBL) is a hygroscopic, water-soluble oily liquid. It is a common solvent and reagent, with a diverse range of applications in pharmaceuticals, agrichemicals, and epoxy coatings. It is also used as a solvent in industrial cleaning products, paint strippers, and adhesive removers.
Sipchem’s Methanol (MeOH) is a light, colorless, volatile, and flammable liquid and is an essential chemical building block for other chemical derivatives used in a wide range of consumer and industrial products that enhance the quality of day-to-day life. The Methanol converted into Formaldehyde is used to manufacture a diverse range of products including plastics, paints, textiles, pigments, and dyes. We also use Methanol to manufacture Acetic Acid as well as in energy substitution applications such as MTBE, Gasoline Blending, Biodiesel, DME, and Marine Bunker Fuel. It is also increasingly used as a feedstock for New Methanol to Olefins Plants.
Vinyl Acetate Monomer
Sipchem’s Vinyl Acetate Monomer (VAM) is a colorless liquid. It is a key ingredient in manufacturing a wide range of emulsion polymers such as Polyvinyl Acetate(PVA) and is used in the intermediates present in paints, adhesives, printing inks, coatings, and textiles. It is also used in manufacturing Ethylene Vinyl Acetate, an elastomeric copolymer with a wide range of important applications.
Sipchem’s Tetrahydrofuran (THF) is a low viscosity water-soluble liquid that has many applications as a general solvent in both pharmaceuticals and adhesives. It is mainly used to produce Polytetramethylene Ether Glycol, which is used to manufacture urethane elastomers and fibers.
