Chang Chun's trimethylolpropane (TMP) is a widely functional intermediate in the organic chemical industry. TMP can improve various resins’ toughness, corrosion-resistance, and sealing strength. It is very stable against oxidation, hydrolysis, and pyrolysis. It’s mainly used as the raw material for alkyd resin paint, polyurethane coating, and high-end oil coatings/paints. It can also be used for the production of plasticizers, surfactants, lubricants, synthetic leather, heat insulator, etc.
It can replace glycerol or work in conjunction with polyols, such as neopentyl glycol and pentaerythritol, to produce alkyd resin.
The lubricants produced with TMP offer advantages of low melting point, high viscosity, high ignition point, and good anti-oxidation property.
Ester compounds produced using TMP with non-acidic catalysts are excellent plasticizers.
The emulsifiers produced by TMP are used in cosmetic, textile and calico printing industries.
After being esterified by oleic acid, TMP can react with polyformaldehyde to produce fuel additive.
Raw material for production of trimethylolpropane triacrylate (TMPTA), which can then be used as reactive diluent for UV curable coating and printing ink.
TMPTM produced from TMP can act as PVC emulsion additive, anaerobic adhesive, rubber crosslinking agent and printing ink curing agent.
TMPTE produced from TMP can be used as reactive diluent for epoxy resin and as modifier for polyester and melamine resin.
Molten and flake grades are available.
