5-Isopropyl-m-Xylene is extensively used in the production of terephthalic acid and its derivatives. The increasing demand for these compounds across numerous industry verticals will bolster the market outlook.
Purified terephthalic acid (PTA) finds wide use in the production of polyester based coatings and resins utilized in the formulation of automotive components, metals, electronic appliances, coil coatings, and industrial maintenance equipment. It is typically used with NPG glycol in polyester powder coating resins. It also finds application in unsaturated polyester resins which are used in fiberglass reinforced plastics.
A vast majority of the terephthalic acid commercially produced is used as precursor to polyethylene terephthalate (PET). The product is expected to witness a significant demand in the manufacturing of polybutylene terephthalate and numerous other engineering polymers. Polyester fibers made of terephthalic acid offer easy fabric care, in blend with natural and synthetic fibers or by itself. Polyester films are widely used in audio and video recording tapes, photographic films, data storage tapes, labels, and several other sheet materials that require both toughness and dimensional stability.
