Spring Chemical’s principle products including DMC, pharmacy grade propylene glycol, cosmetic additives, blending agents and electronic grade chemical products.
Dimethyl Carbonate (DMC)
DMC is a colourless liquid, produced from a chemical reaction between propylene oxide and methanol. With an added catalyst, it is synthesized through the processes of fractionation and filtration. DMC is used widely in medical applications, agricultural pesticides and the manufacture of synthetic materials. It is an important additive to lubricating oil, solvents and gasoline as well. DMC is also used in the electronics chemistry.
Propylene Glycol (PG)
PG is a colourless, odourless, oily liquid. It is an associated product from the production of DMC. It is generally recognised as a safe and stable compound that can be used in food, cosmetics and medicine. Among a wide variety of applications, it is commonly used as a moisturiser and a lubricant in pharmaceutical products. Industrial applications include polyester resins, silica gels and agents in plastics production. Propylene glycol can also be used as a substitute for ethylene glycol in antifreeze and hydraulic brake fluids for aircraft.
Dipropylene Glycol (DPG)
DPG is a clear, colourless and vicous liquid. It is used as initiations for urethane polyol synthesis and one of the most important plasticizers for polyvinyl chloride resins. DPG has an affinity for oils that makes it an ideal component of textile lubricant formulations. It is material for diacrylates that are used as reactive diluents to lower the viscosity.
Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA)
IPA is colourless, flammable compound with strong odour. It is produced through propylene hydration reaction catalysed under pressure. It is used widely in medical markets as a sterilising product when mixed with water. Other uses include its use as a cleaner or solvent for industrial purposes or as a gasoline additive for dissolving ice or water in fuel lines. It is highly effective when used as a cleaning agent for electronic devices such laser lenses in optical disk drives (i.e. CD, DVD) or computer monitor screens.
