SMR:Epichlorohydrin Market Analysis, Segments, Growth and Value Chain 2020


Deerfield Beach, FL -- (SBWire) -- 07/14/2016 --Epichlorohydrin is flammable epoxy compound, highly reactive and colorless liquid made by chlorine, milk of lime and propylene. It is miscible in diethyl ether, ethanol, and chloroform and insoluble in water. Phenoxy and unmodified epoxy resins are produced using epichlorohydrin as a raw material. Epichorohydrin is used in production of glycerin. Epichlorohydrin holds a stand in paper industries, water treatment plants and rubber factories owing to its wet strength and curing properties.

Epichlorohydrin Market is mainly utilized in manufacturing of an epoxy resin. Epoxy resin is an important compound and used in various applications such as electronics, adhesives, construction and electrical. Increasing demand of epoxy resins in different applications would ultimately fuel the demand for epichlorohydrin. However, long term exposure to epichlorohydrin has found to be harmful for human as well as for animals. Prolong contact with epichlorohydrin leads to blood related diseases and respiratory problems. Mild contact with epichlorohydrin causes skin rashes irritation to eyes and difficulty in inhalation.
