Our product portfolio is currently based on three main product families: ketones, various types of esters, polycarbonate diols.
The Fine Chemicals Area is divided into two different areas:
- Multi-plant area where we produce ketones like Cyclopentanone – pharma, agrochemicals, flavors and fragrances, electronics – or Diethyl Ketone – agrochemicals, photography and lithography –, our Ravecarb, which are polycarbonate diols increasingly used all over the world in all high performance PU based systems – i.e. coatings, paints, adhesives, elastomers, sealants, synthetic leathers… – and epoxidized soybean oil.
- Multipurpose area where we produce various esters under Freeflex brand name – plasticizers for TPU – as well as other ketones like Dicyclohexyl Ketone, Propiophenone and Isobutyrophenone – all for pharma, agrochemicals, photo-initiators.
