Applications

1,3 BG is preferred for usage in resins and plasticizers as it is non reactive in nature. This property allows for substances to flow easily around 1,3 BG without the substance reacting. This way 1,3 BG gives strength and durability to the Resin/Plasticizer. The major part of 1,3-butanediol is used as an intermediate for the production of plasticizers for polymers used. It is also used for the production of polyester resins, acrylates , and polyurethanes. In addition, 1,3-butanediol is a good drying agent that can be used in animal feed, cosmetics and tobacco.Since it is non-toxic and has a slight bacteriostatic and fungicidal action, it can be used in surfactants or solvents for flavorings or as plasticizers for plastics packaging.
