SACHEM produces alcohols, including Dichloropropanol (DCP), for unique and demanding applications. Uses are found in chemical production, pharmaceuticals, polymers, dyes, and food. Simple derivatives of these products can have added high value to processors in secondary operations farther downstream.
Chloro-alcohols can undergo reaction on either the chloro- or hydroxyl- group. This dual functionality enhances its desirability as an intermediate for a wide variety of chemical products. Often the alcohol’s esters are used for secondary processing applications.
Some of the uses found for these products are:
- Cross-linking agents
- Flame resistance additive
- Color fastness agent
- Co-catalyst in polymerization
- Chemical reactant
