MPO stands for 2-Methyl 1, 3-Propane Diol (CAS 2163-42-0). It is a versatile non-toxic short chain diol possessing two primary hydroxyl groups. It exhibits a high boiling point of 212°C. At room temperature it is a liquid - it has a freezing point of -54°C. MPO is much less hygroscopic than BDO.
Gantrade supplies MPO in 200 kg (441 lb) factory sealed iron drums and 20 MT (44,080 lb) bulk ISO tanks. The minimum order size is one drum. Samples are available in 1 kg containers.
Gantrade’s partner for MPO is Dairen Chemical Corporation (DCC). DCC is the largest global producer of MPO with five individual production facilities across Taiwan and China. DCC is back integrated to propylene as the feedstock. Gantrade maintains inventories of MPO in the USA and Europe at multiple warehouse locations. We offer value in terms of pricing, delivery, service, including technical support for new product development, and knowledge sharing.
The shelf life of MPO is 2 years if stored in the unopened, original containers and kept at ~ 20ºC. MPO is slightly hygroscopic.
