SolvChem distributes a range of industrial-grade alcohols useful in countless sectors. As far as fuels go, alcohols have long been among the most favored chemicals. As versatile and useful as they are, the handling of alcohol products can be a significant challenge. Read on to learn more about alcohols and why it pays to trust SolvChem with your chemical handling needs.
What Qualifies As an Alcohol?
From denatured ethanol to isopropanol, alcohols vary by type and application. Generally speaking, alcohols are chemicals derived from sources such as natural gas and petroleum. They can be blended and modified for industrial and commercial uses. Alcohols typically fall into one of four major categories: methanol, ethanol, isopropyl alcohol and glycerol.
Within those categories, alcohols can be blended for specific applications. Our list of alcohol-based products includes:
- 2- Ethyl Hexanol
- Denatured Ethanol
- Diacetone Alcohol
- Methyl Amyl Alcohol
- Secondary Butanol
- Tertiary Butanol
- UCAR Filmer IBT
- Solvchem Ester
