Derivatives overview

We produce carboxylic acids, polyols, amines, specialty esters, higher aldehydes and specialty derivatives in our Oxo Derivatives segment for a wide variety of applications, including synthetic lubricants, coatings, agrochemicals and phthalate free plasticizers.

Product Specifications

Carboxylic Acids

  • Lubricants
  • Siccatives
  • Flavors & Fragrances
  • Polymer Stabilizers

Our carboxylic acids (C4-C9 acids) are used in synthetic lubricants, safety glass, animal feed, siccatives, flavors and fragrances and polymer-stabilizers.

We manufacture butyric and propionic acid in Animal Feed (AF) quality. These products are of high importance to the feed industry, which uses them as building blocks for feed materials that are free from antibiotic growth promoters, so called AGP-free feed.

Polyols

  • High Solids Coatings
  • Powder Coatings
  • Cosmetics
  • Lubricants
  • Polymer Additives

Our polyols have several positive effects on the end product. In coatings they improve thermal stability, flexibility, UV durability and scratch resistance. Potential substitution is limited because of polyols specific product features. Our main polyol products are NPG, TMP and 1.3-BG.
