Polymers & Rubber

    Chevron Phillips Chemical Company LP manufactures chemicals that serve the polymer and rubber industries as chain transfer agents for polymerization reactions. We also produce chemical intermediates, which provide the building blocks for biocides and antioxidants. We offer a variety of specialized sulfur chemicals, with a wide range of properties to meet the specific needs of customers.

    Applications

    Antioxidant Intermediate
    Normal mercaptans are used as reactants in the synthesis of antioxidants, which minimize undesirable effects from processes such as the stabilization of tin.
    Biocide Intermediate
    Methyl 3-Mercaptopropionate (MMP) is used as a building block for biocides for cleaning agents, paints, and cosmetic products.  MMP allows for the synthesis of biocides that are more environmentally friendly than traditional chemicals.
