Discover the multiple functionalities of lime and minerals

Polymers

React

Lime participates in the production of different complex organic polymers by creating radicals that form new molecules:

  • epichlorohydrins are used for epoxy resin production.
  • propylene oxide (PO) is an intermediate product for e.g. polyurethane (PUR)
  • monopropylene glycol (MPG) enables airplane de-icing and is a liquid in heat exchangers.
