Methylene Diphenyl Diisocyanate Production Cost Analysis 2020
Methylene diphenyl diisocyanate, often abbreviated as MDI, is known as an aromatic diisocyanate. MDI is reactive with polyols in the production of polyurethane. Rigid polyurethane foams are good thermal insulators and are used in almost all freezers and refrigerators worldwide and buildings.
The total world production of MDI and polymeric MDI is over 7.5 million tonnes per year (in 2017). As of 2019, the largest producer of the compound was Wanhua Chemical Group. Other major producers are Covestro, BASF, Dow, Huntsman, Tosoh, Kumho Mitsui Chemicals.
4,4'-MDI is also used as an industrial-strength adhesive, which is available to end consumers as various high-strength bottled glue preparations.
Diisocyanates belong to a family of chemical building blocks that are mainly used to make polyurethane products, such as rigid and flexible foams, coatings, adhesives, sealants, and elastomers. Many of the products we rely upon on a daily basis are safer and more comfortable through the use of polyurethanes made possible by diisocyanates. Diisocyanates are crucial in the manufacturing of countless products, particularly in the transportation and construction industries.
