HDO® 1,6-Hexanediol is a valuable intermediate product for the chemical industry. It finds applications in a variety of polymeric systems and
is also used in the synthesis of specialty chemicals. This linear diol contains two primary hydroxyl groups which are terminally located. This configuration results in a rapid and simultaneous reaction in the formation of numerous di-substituted products.
HDO® 1,6-Hexanediol is used in the production of polyesters for polyurethane elastomers, coatings, adhesives and polymeric plasticizers. In these end use areas, it contributes significantly to many high performance characteristics such as hydrolytic stability, high flexibility, good adhesion and
The most important end uses for HDO® 1,6-Hexanediol are found in surface coatings, polyurethanes and specialty acrylates. Other end uses include adhesives, polymeric plasticizers, unsaturated polyesters and dyestuffs.
In general,1,6-Hexanediol is used as a flexibilizing agent. It imparts high impact resistance and excellent low temperature properties in final products. Good color stability, caustic resistance and hydrolytic stability are other important features.
