Hexamines

Hexamethylenetetramine

More commonly known as Hexamine, is a white granular material made from ammonia and formaldehyde and used in a variety of industrial applications, including:

  • Curing agent for industrial phenolic resins (Novolac Resins)
  • Chemical intermediate/chemical synthesis Rubber cross-linker

Benefits for manufactures

Used to formulate antiseptic agent for livestock Mining explosives Hexamine can provide a variety of benefits for manufactures such as:

Efficient cross-linking with no water release Formaldehyde donor when used in aqueous acidic environment Various hexamine solutions in water available in drums, totes, or bulk trucks.

Triazines

Hydrogen Sulfide Scavengers for Oil and Gas Production

Hydrogen sulfide (H„S) naturally occurs in crude oil. There are many safety hazards associated with H2S, so it is important to effectively control it. H2S also has detrimental effects on production equipment as it is highly corrosive and can degrade process and storage infrastructure, leading to costly repairs.

We offer monoethanoloamine (MEA) triazine H,S scavenger products that are specifically designed for:

  • Crude oil
  • Natural gas
  • Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG)
  • Steam-assisted gravity drainage (SAGD)
  • Water Treatment

Our H,S scavengers can be utilized in many locations:

  • Wellsites
  • Production platforms
  • Ships
  • Pipelines
  • Refineries
  • Tank trucks
  • Storage tanks
  • Railcars

Bakelite is able to supply a range of MEA-triazine concentrations for the EMEA-market from our production facility in Kitee (Finland).

Formaldehyde Solutions

Bakelite produces a range of aqueous formaldehyde solutions that range from 52% to 25% active formaldehyde stabilized and non-stabilized.

  • Urea and Melamine
    Formaldehyde resins
  • Phenolic resins
  • MDI for polyurethanes
  • Polyols(TMP/NPG/Penta/BDO)
  • Chelates
  • Leather treatment
  • Agriculture

Applications include but are not limited to:

  • Automotive applications
  • Crop nutrition and crop protection products
  • Wood panel binders
  • Chemical intermediates
  • Coatings
