Evonik has expanded its production capacity for the high-purity C13 alcohol isotridecanol (ITDA) at the Marl Chemical Park. This will enable the specialty chemicals group to continue to build on its position as manufacturer of this product, and to grow with its customers.

"ITDA is a real petrochemical specialty. With this quality, which contains almost 100 percent C13 alcohols, we offer our customers a particularly high-quality product," says Hinnerk G. Becker, Market Segment Manager for Specialties at Evonik Performance Intermediates.

Application in paints and lacquer resins

The high-purity C13 alcohol is an important intermediate product in the production of surface-active substances (so-called surfactants). They are used, for example, in high-quality industrial applications such as cleaning and lubricants. Another application of ITDA is in the form of special esters, found in paints and lacquer resins.
