HDO® 1,6-Hexanediol

HDO® is a versatile diol precursor from the group alkanediols; it is colorless and crystalline solid.

HDO® as a building block for resins used for adhesives providing flexibility and adhesion

HDO® as a building block for the production of polyester and polyurethane resins. Good balance between hardness and flexibility, adhesion, weatherability or hydrolysis resistance. 


HDO is also applied in the manufacturing process of radiation-curable coatings, polycarbonate diols and as a reactive thinner for the formulation of epoxy systems which are used for the efficient production of rotor blades for modern wind turbines.
