Plasticizers are widely used as softening agents in the manufacture of Poly Vinyl Chloride (PVC) products. Of the various types of plasticizers the Company produces, Dioctyl Phthalate (DOP) constitutes the bulk of its production besides TOTM, DBP, DOA,.... DOP satisfies the broadest range of processing and performance requirements for PVC at a low cost and thus, has the largest market share. It is widely used in the manufacture of PVC applications such as hoses, imitation leather, carpets, shoes and insulation coating for electric cables and wires.
Acrylamides are used in the form polyacrylamides or acrylamide-base-polymers. In paper industry, Polyacrylamides (acrylamide-base polymers) are used as paper strength, retention aids, drainage aids, flocculants, thickeners and coatings . While in water treatment, Polyacrylamides are used as treatment of potable water, municipal sewage, industrial waste water and processing solutions. Other major usage, in Oil recovery enhancement, Water with adequate mobility is injected into an oil reservoir to push out the oil in a matrix of sand or porous rock. Polyacrylamide functions as a mobility controller or water thickeners.
