ADI-PURE® Adipic Acid

ADI-PURE® adipic acid (hexanedioic acid) is a high purity, white, crystalline powder which is primarily used by INVISTA in its nylon polymer production. Exhibiting typical carboxylic acid chemistry, its excellent uniformity and consistent end-use performance make it a valuable intermediate in a wide range of applications:

  • As a monomer in nylon, paper additives, copolyamides, terpolymers, and unsaturated polyester resins (UPRs)
  • As polyester polyols for polyurethanes
  • In polymer additives for epoxy curing agents and plasticizers
  • As a chemical intermediate in synthesis of polyesters/diesters, polyester polyols, cyclopentanone, 1,6-hexanediol and dimethyl adipate
  • In end-uses such as solvents, lubricants, electronics, soil conditioners, glass protection agents, briquetting agents, leather tanning agents, flue gas desulfurization scrubbers and cleaning aids
