Short Description:

Butanediol, mainly acetylene and formaldehyde as raw materials.  It is used as chain extender for the production of polybutylene terephthalate and polyurethane, and as an important raw material for tetrahydrofuran, γ-butyrolactone, medicine and organic synthesis.  Because polybutylene terephthalate is a kind of polyester with good properties, the demand for engineering plastics is increasing rapidly.
