Purified Isophthalic Acid (PIA) Production Cost Reports

Chemicals

Purified isophthalic acid is an organic compound. This solid is an isomer of phthalic acid as well as terephthalic acid. Purified isophthalic acid (PIA) is used mainly in unsaturated polyester resins. It boosts the property balance for coating resins and, thus, enhances clarity of PET-bottle grade resins. PIA or the purified isophthalic acid is a difunctional aromatic acid.  In appearance, it is a white, free-flowing crystalline powder that is available in bulk and a variety of packaging sizes.

Some of the uses of purified isophthalic acid include:

  • It helps in maintaining the hardness, flexibility, weatherability, and fast cure in waterborne, powder, and coil coatings in high molecular weight polymers.
  • It enhances hydrolytic stability to improve the shelf life of waterborne coatings.
  • It is used to make clear bottles in a range of shapes and sizes and thicker preforms for returnable/refillable containers.
  • It broadens the processing window, which lowers cycle time and even reduces energy requirements.
  • It also improves taste in bottled water, without the unpleasant flavour of acetaldehyde.
  • It also lowers the permeability of carbon dioxide and oxygen, keeping beverages carbonated and flavourful longer.
  • In unsaturated polyester resins, PIA provides superior resistance to several acids, solvents, and other chemicals.

It offers an excellent combination of moderate cost as well as high performance that often matches that of higher-priced, corrosion-resistant polymers like vinyl esters and bisphenol A polyesters for many applications.

In diverse applications, purified isophthalic acid offers a chemical platform for making thermal as well as oxidative stable aramid fibres, polyester elastomers, oil additives, adhesives, X-ray contrast agents, and fibre dye enhancers.
