BAB, branched alkyl benzene, (also called branched dodecylbenzene DDB) is a petrochemical produced through alkylation of benzene by propylene tetramer. It is a clear and limpid non corrosive liquid, with a high oxidative and thermal stability. Its hydrolysis stability is also very high. BAB is used in surfactant industry, plasticizer, solvent and base stock for metal working fluids like cutting oil, metal lamination, chemical intermediate synthesis, chemical additives. The combination of BAB superior thermal and lubricant

Dicyclopentadiene, abbreviated DCPD, is the dimer of cyclopentadiene (CPD). In the pure state DCPD is a volatile solid with a characteristic odour. Dicyclopentadiene is coproduced in large quantities in the steam cracking of naphtha and gas oils to ethylene. In addition, it can be prepared in a Diels-Alderreaction of 2 cyclopentadiene molecules.
Most dicyclopentadiene is used as co-monomer in the production of synthetic resins, in particular unsaturated polyesters and synthetic rubbers, for example EPDM. Poly (DCPD), which contains some dicyclopentadiene as monomer is used in printing inks and engineering plastics.

Nonene is an alkene, also called propylene trimer with an average carbon number of nine. It is a branched olefin oligomer produced by polymerisation of propylene.
Nonene is a key building block for major chemical compounds.
Nonene derivated chemicals are used in wire and cable coatings, electrical insulation, automotive interiors and coated fabrics and for Polyvinylchloride (PVC) flexibilisation.
Nonene can be used to produce other chemical intermediates such as alkyl phenols. Those intermediates yield to detergents and cleaners, as well as antioxidants used in crankcase lubricating oils.
Equilex is a leading distributor of Nonene in the world. Feel free to contact us for your supplies in nonene.
