OUR RUBBER & PE MONOMERS
Performance Intermediates is a major producer of C4-based materials for the rubber, plastics and specialty chemicals markets. Within the market segment Rubber & PE Monomers, we offer different products such as Butadiene, our key monomer in the production of synthetic rubbers and latex, Butene-1 mainly used in the production of high-quality plastics such as Polyethylene and poly(1-Butene). Furthermore, we are offering high-purity n-Butane and isobutane for various markets as well as Butane-mixtures. Isobutane is especially manufactured and purified for use as an aerosol propellant.
Butene-1 is mainly used in the production of high-quality plastics such as polyethylene and poly(1-butene). Important applications of Butene-1 are packaging materials such as films, bags, and food packaging. It provides special properties such as greater tensile strength. In the construction industry as well, our Butene-1 is widely used – for example, in the manufacture of pipes and hot adhesives or containers. It can also be found in diverse chemical applications, such as the production of butene oxide and valeric acid and as a component in bio-refining processes.
