Aromatics

Aromatics

Aromatic products including benzene, toluene, ortoxylene and xylene feature similar attributes. They are colourless, highly flammable and toxic liquids each with a characteristic odour. Aromatic products are applied across different industries mainly as solvents or feedstock in production of numerous goods, which, in fact, are widely used in our everyday lives. MOL Group’s aromatic products can be used as chemical feedstock, intermedier or ingredients. The usability of aromatics is wide from polymer production through applying as a degreasing agent to use as solvents for paints.




 

 

Aromatic products of MOL Group:

 

Benzene

Benzene is an important organic chemical compound, which is a natural constituent of crude oil and is one of the elementary petrochemicals. It is colourless and highly flammable liquid with a sweet smell, and is responsible for the aroma around petrol stations. Benzene is an essential chemical feedstock in the production of diverse intermediate products, e.g. polymer plastics, synthetic fibers, detergents and solvents.

You can purchase benzene from two refineries – Százhalombatta, Hungary, and Bratislava, Slovakia. Delivery is possible via road tank cars and rail tank cars.

Toluene

Toluene is a colourless, water-insoluble liquid with the smell associated with paint thinners. Toluene is used as an industrial feedstock. It is consumed in the manufacture of toluene diisocyanate used as a raw material for the polyurethane foams’ production. Toluene also serves as an octane improver in gasoline as well as a solvent for paints, paint thinners, silicone sealants, glues and many other organic compounds.

You can purchase toluene from two refineries – Százhalombatta, Hungary, and Bratislava, Slovakia. Delivery is possible via road tank cars – until 24 tons – and rail tank cars – until 55 tons.

 

Xylene

Xylene is a major petrochemical produced by catalytic reforming and also by coal carbonisation in the manufacture of coke fuel. Xylenes are mainly produced as part of the BTX aromatics (benzene, toluene and xylenes) extracted from the product of catalytic reforming known as "reformate". The mixture is a slightly greasy, colorless liquid commonly encountered as a solvent.

In case of slower drying is required toluene is often substituted by xylene solvent. Xylene acts as a degreasing agent and is applied in rubber, adhesives and leather industries, in the production of pesticides, as an intermediate in the manufacture of certain polymers, in petroleum distillation, and in histology laboratories.

You can purchase xylene from two refineries – Százhalombatta, Hungary, and Bratislava, Slovakia. Delivery is possible via road tank cars – until 24 tons – and rail tank cars – until 55 tons.

 

Ortoxylene

Ortoxylene is the second largest commercial isomer of xylene.

Ortoxylene is a key-ingredient for producing phthalic anhydride (PAN). PAN is strongly connected to housing market because it’s an important ingredient of PVC and thus. Also used as alkyd resins in solvent-based paints.

You can purchase ortoxylene from two refineries – Százhalombatta, Hungary, and Bratislava, Slovakia. Delivery is possible via road tank cars and rail tank cars.
