Application: Adipic acid primarily used in nylon polymer production. Exhibiting typical carboxylic acid chemistry, its excellent uniformity and consistent end-use performance make it a valuable intermediate in a wide range of applications:

As a monomer in nylon, paper additives, copolyamides, terpolymers, and unsaturated polyester resins (UPRs)

As polyester polyols for polyurethanes

In polymer additives for epoxy curing agents and plasticizers

As a chemical intermediate in synthesis of polyesters/diesters, polyester polyols, cyclopentanone, 1,6-hexanediol and dimethyl adipate

In end-uses such as solvents, lubricants, electronics, soil conditioners, glass protection agents, briquetting agents, leather tanning agents, flue gas desulfurization scrubbers and cleaning aids
