Recent Development

November 2021- BASF, a global leader in specialty polymer production, with speedy effect or as existing contracts permit, has announced the rise in the prices of the 1,6-Hexanediol (HDO) and polyalcohols Neopentyl Glycol (NPG) in the European region:

Neopentyl Glycol (NPG) - €400/mt
1,6-Hexanediol (HDO) - €1,000/mt

Neopentyl Glycol (NPG) is a basically a high-quality intermediate used for several applications such as manufacturing of polyester resins for coatings, unsaturated polyester resins, plasticizers, and lubricants. 1, 6-Hexanediol (HDO) is primarily used in the production of industrial coatings, including cosmetics, lower volatile organic compound formulations, adhesives, and polyurethanes. It plays a role of a reactive thinner in making of epoxy systems. For example, it effectively produces rotor blades for modern wind turbines and construction components for lightweight automotive applications.
