Arkalon produces DDP, particularly useful as a cure accelerator in peroxy initiated acrylate based adhesives and sealants. DDP is available in Standard Grade, which is a cost-effective cure accelerator, and Performance Grade, which is more efficient with the advantage of reducing both batch-to-batch cure variation and chemical waste compared to commonly available low purity...

Propargylamines are building blocks in the production of some pharmaceutical active ingredients. For example, anti-Parkinson propargylamine-containing MAO-B inhibitor drug, rasagiline, has neuroprotective properties. In industrial processes propargylamine-containing compositions are used for the synthesis of brightening additives for nickel plating and as corrosion inhibitors (read more)
TMC is an important building block in the production of polymer membranes useful for fluid purification via reverse osmosis (RO) techniques. An important application for TMC in water purification membranes involves interfacial polymerization of meta-phenylene diamine (MPD) with 1,3,5-benzenetricarbonyl trichloride producing a crosslinked polyamide (US 4,277,344) (read more)
