p-Xylene is an aromatic hydrocarbon. It is one of the three isomers of dimethyl benzene known collectively as xylenes. The p- stands for para-, indicating that the two methyl groups in p-xylene occupy the diametrically opposite substituent positions 1 and 4.

Based on the end-user, the paraxylene market is segmented into the plastic Industry, the Textile industry, and others. Paraxylene is widely used as a feedstock (or “building block”) to manufacture industrial chemicals, notably terephthalic acid (TPA), purified terephthalic acid (PTA), and dimethyl-terephthalate (DMT). Paraxylene is mainly used in the textile market for polyester fabric Applications.

Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA)

Purified Terephthalic Acid (PTA) is a crucial raw material used to make various products, including polyester fabrics. it is an organic compound produced commercially through the oxidation of paraxylene by the oxygen in the air. A majority of PTA is consumed in the development of polyester resins, such as polyester films, polyester fiber & yarn, and PET material bottles.

Growth of the purified terephthalic acid (PTA) market is primarily driven by the rise in demand for PTA in textile and packaging industries, ongoing urbanization, and improvement in lifestyle of consumers in Asia. Expansion of end-use markets, such as bottling and packaging and fiber & yarn, is also driving the demand for PTA.

Polyvinyl alcohol

Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), which is essentially made from polyvinyl acetate through hydrolysis, is easily degradable by biological organisms and in water is a solubilized crystalline structure polymer.

PVA is used in sizing agents that give greater strength to textile yarns and make the paper more resistant to oils and greases. It is also employed as a component of adhesives and emulsifiers, as a water-soluble protective film, and as a starting material for the preparation of other resins.


The name nylon refers to a group of polymers called polyamides. Nylons are identified by the amide groups (CONH) and include a wide range of materials. Polyamides (nylons) are used in fabrics, carpets, and many other materials.

Most polyamides tend to be semi-crystalline and generally have good hardness and thermal and chemical resistance, although it should be noted that they can be attacked by strong acids, alcohols, and alkalis.


Grade PA6IMNC102 is a simple colorless polyamide 6 called Volgamid. This grade is special for the injection process and has good mechanical and thermal properties.

Its usage includes the aircraft and automobile manufacturing industries, nets and ropes, clothing fibers, electronics and electrical industries, the manufacture of musical instruments (strings, three-stringed violins), and consumer and industrial goods.
