The Pharma precursor business segment holds a number of typically smaller-sized products with very specific applications. They mainly belong to Taminco's portfolio because of a technology or raw material fit with some of the other products produced.
2-Pyrrolidone is produced from the reaction between ammonia and gamma-butyrolactone. Taminco's 2-Pyrrolidone is a high-quality grade, primarily used in the production of pharmaceuticals.
N-Ethylpyrrolidone (NEP), derived from the reaction between Monoethylamine and gamma-butyrolactone, is also used as a pharmaceutical building block. Aside from the pharmaceutical application, the material is applied as a solvent in low-temperature applications.
AN-PMI is a blend between Acrylonitrile and Phenylmaleimide, used in the formulation of ABS rubbers to enhance the heat stability.
Benzyldimethylamine (BDMA) is a DMA derivative mainly used as a catalyst for Polyurethane foams. The product is also used as a precursor for agrochemical and pharmaceutical synthesis.
DMAPA Triazine is a DMAPA Derivative also used in Polyurethane catalyst applications.
