Toluenediamine Production Cost Analysis 2020

Toluenediamine or 2,4-diaminotoluene is an organic compound, which in appearance is a white solid. It is produced by the hydrogenation of 2,4-dinitrotoluene using a nickel catalyst. Toluenediamine is primarily used as a precursor to toluene diisocyanate, i.e., a precursor to polyurethane. Its reaction with the chemical compound benzene diazonium chloride gives the cationic azo dye Basic Orange 1. The condensation of 2,4-diamine toluene with acetaldehyde gives the acridine dye called Basic Yellow 9.

The primary use of p-toluenediamine sulfate is as a permanent hair dye. It is also used as a colour component in sulphuric dyes as well as as an acridine and as a colourant in the rubber industry. It plays a role as a metabolite.  It is slightly miscible in water and neutrally buoyant in water. It decomposes with the emission of toxic oxides of nitrogen at high temperatures. 

Procurement Resource provides an in-depth cost analysis of Toluenediamine production. The report incorporates the manufacturing process with detailed process and material flow, capital investment, operating costs along with financial expenses and depreciation charges. The study is based on the latest prices and other economic data available. We also offer additional analysis of the report with detailed breakdown of all cost components (Capital Investment Details, Production Cost Details, Economics for another Plant Location, Dynamic Cost Model).
