The commercial production of formaldehyde was first started in Germany in the 1880s but the development of a methanol synthesis route in the 1920s gave the spur to the development of large-scale manufacture.
Formic Acid Facilities
Formic acid (also called methanoic acid) is the simplest carboxylic acid. Its chemical formula is HCOOH or HCO2H. It is an important intermediate in chemical synthesis and occurs naturally, most notably in the venom of bee and ant stings.
Naphthalene, also known as naphthalin, bicyclo[4.4.0]deca-1,3,5,7,9-pentene or antimite is a crystalline, aromatic, white, solid hydrocarbon with formula C10H8 and the structure of two fused benzene rings. It is best known as the traditional, primary ingredient of mothballs.
Phosphonates, compounds with a carbon–phosphorus bond, are a key component of the marine dissolved organic phosphorus pool1. These compounds serve as a phosphorus source for primary producers, including the nitrogen-fixing cyanobacteria Trichodesmium2.
We serve virtually all market segments in the polymer industry. Our products are used in the production, modification, compounding and processing of thermoplastic resins, and thermoset and elastomeric materials. In fact, we supply the entire polymer chain.
Aluminium Sulphate Facilities
Aluminium sulfate, Al2(SO4)3, is widely used by industry in New Zealand. Its most common applications are in the pulp and paper industry and in the purification of water.
Textile Auxiliaries Facilities
Compounds and their mixtures that facilitate, accelerate and provide for technological processing and refinement of textiles. Our textile auxiliary portfolio covers all stages of textile processing, ie. pretreatment (washing, boiling, bleaching), dyeing and printing (wetting, engraining, anticreasing, levelling, dispersing, soaping, fixing, oxidizing) and finishing (milling, softening, caulking).
