From industrial-grade products to pharmaceuticals, ketones are useful chemicals. As a leading distributor of industrial chemicals, SolvChem distributes high-quality ketones blended for use in virtually any industry. Learn more about the wide range of uses for ketones below, and find out why customers in every industrial sector trust SolvChem.

What Makes Ketones Unique?

Ketones are simple chemical compounds derived from organic sources, such as certain sugars. They include bonded carbon and oxygen, and are considered “simple” because they lack reactive groups such as chlorine. They are both notably stable and usefully reactive. Other features of ketones include the pleasant scent of liquid ketones (solid ketones are odorless), and water solubility.

While ketones come from natural sources, they also can be synthetically manufactured. At SolvChem, we emphasize chemical quality. We distribute the following types of ketones:

  • Acetone
  • Dialetone alcohol
  • Diisobutyl ketone
  • Methyl amyl ketone
  • Methyl ethyl ketone (MEK and MEK Solvents)
  • Methyl isobutyl ketone

The SolvChem team includes highly skilled chemists with a vast understanding of ketones and other chemicals. Our aim is to ensure that you have safe and easy access to quality chemicals.

Endless Uses for Quality Ketones

There is a reason ketone production is as high as it is — versatility. Almost any industrial sector can benefit from quality ketone products. While they are most widely recognized as solvents, ketones also have an impressive functionality for other applications, including:

  • Resins
  • Lacquers
  • Perfumes
  • Flavorings
  • Dyes
  • Chloroform
  • Plastics
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Chemistry

Of course, this list just scratches the surface of uses for ketones. As a leader in industrial chemical distribution, SolvChem can help you make the best decision for your company. Whatever your specific application, the team at SolvChem can help you identify the ketones or other chemicals best suited for your purpose.

The Challenges of Procuring Quality Ketones

It goes without saying that your business can benefit from high-quality ketones, but there are plenty of challenges to getting your chemical products where they need to be. That is, unless you can team with the right distributor.

The world of chemicals is one of the most highly regulated. You have to consider the risk of personal exposure or cross-contamination, for example. And beyond blending and moving chemical products, you have to be sure that regulations and best practices are followed during warehousing and shipping. One mistake can be incredibly costly and expose you to liability.

The experts at SolvChem oversee the process on your behalf — from start to finish. We do the heavy lifting when it comes to logistics so that you can focus on your business.
