Neopentyl Glycol

We are a distributor of the product Neopentyl Glycol for Eastern and Western Europe, but with excellent opportunities for export outside of Europe.

Description and uses

NPG is a diol which features unique chemical structure. It has 1,3-position two hydroxyl groups on the primary carbon atom for rapid esterification reaction and two methyl groups, instead of the usual hydrogen atoms, on the alpha-carbon atom for the high chemical and thermal stability. It is a white crystalline solid partially soluble in water soluble in oxygenated solvents and completely soluble in alcohol. Neopentylglycol and its derivatives have the applications in the fields including water based coatings, magnetic coatings, gel coats, powder coatings, high solid systems, coil coatings, multilayer coatings (on alkyds, epoxy, polyester and poly urethane resins). It is also used as an intermediate for the synthesis of lubricants, plasticizers, adhesives, mortar or cement systems, photographic materials, pharmaceuticals, pesticides, fragrances, fibre lubricants antistatic agents, fabric softeners, vibration dampeners. Ne(o)- is the prefix added to the name of a related older compound to denote a new or recent compound, typically more branched chains in the normal structure.
