Due to the outstanding technical properties and high effectiveness of ITDA, global demand has been growing for years.
The high-purity C13 alcohol is an important intermediate product in the production of surface-active substances (so-called surfactants). They are used, for example, in high-quality industrial applications such as cleaning and lubricants. Another application of ITDA is in the form of special esters, found in high-quality paints and lacquer resins.
"ITDA is a real petrochemical specialty. With this quality, which contains almost 100 percent C13 alcohols, we offer our customers a particularly high-quality product," said Hinnerk G. Becker, market segment manager for Specialties at Evonik Performance Intermediates. "In line with our motto 'Chemistry4People', we offer ITDA, as with all petrochemical specialties, a reliable partnership of equals for both existing and new customers, enhanced by modern digital business and cooperation opportunities."
