Intermediates & Industrial Chemicals


Intermediates and industrial chemicals are key building blocks in the chemical and material value chain, and includes monomers, oligomers and polymers, solvents, reagents, dyes and pigments, surfactants, acids and bases.  Often produced and marketed by large, global chemical manufacturers, either directly or through third party distribution, intermediates and industrial chemicals range from commodities, to certain mid- to high-volume semi-specialty chemicals. 

Intermediates and industrial chemicals are used in virtually every end market: Plastics, paints and coatings, adhesives, explosives, pharmaceuticals and fine chemicals, lubricants, colorants, agricultural chemicals and pesticides, soaps and other personal care products, electronic chemicals, and catalysts, among others.
