Oxo-alcohols are the most important raw material component used in the manufacture of plasticisers, which make PVC materials softer, more elastic and more pliable.



Butanediol (BDO), also known as butylene glycol, is used to produce polyurethane and polyester resins and plasticizers, and a solvent for food flavouring agents.


Propylene glycol

Propylene glycol is a double alcohol mainly used as a chemical intermediate for manufacturing polyester resins. It is also used for deicing aircraft and in antifreeze.
