Description

1,6-Hexanediol is an organic compound with the formula (CH2CH2CH2OH)2. It is a colorless, water-soluble solid.

Applications of 1,6-Hexanediol

Industrial manufacture of polyester and polyurethane frequently uses 1,6-hexanediol. Its relatively lengthy hydrocarbon chain can help polyesters become more rigid and flexible. It is employed as a chain extender in polyurethanes, and the modified polyurethane produced has a low glass transition temperature and a high resistance to hydrolysis. As a crosslinking agent, it is an intermediary to acrylics, such as hexanediol diacrylate.

Benefits of 1,6-Hexanediol

Based on 1,6-hexanediol, urethanes, and co-terephthalates offer quicker crystallization and superior tack characteristics. 1,6-hexanediol has excellent adhesive qualities and high flexibility because of its low glass transition property.

Safety of 1,6-Hexanediol

1,6-Hexanediol has low toxicity and low flammability and is generally considered safe. It is not irritating to the skin but may irritate the respiratory tract or mucous membranes. Dust or vapor of the compound can irritate or damage the eyes.
