Vinyl toluene

Vinyl toluene is a mixture of aromatic compounds that are similar to the compounds toluene and styrene. The individual components can be used for different purposes. For example, α-methylstyrene is used as a raw material for the production of alkyd resins, polyester resins and plasticizers for paints, varnishes, waxes and plastics. Polymerization of the substance produces the plastic poly-alpha-methylstyrene. 2-Methylstyrene, on the other hand, serves as a modifier for alkyd resins, which is used in the production of polystyrene, among other things.

At PENPET you can sustainably order the amount of vinyl toluene you need. We look forward to receiving your inquiry for an individual offer. The liquid can be delivered in ISO tank containers, in IBCs with different filling weights and in 180 kg drums.
