Glycol diethers, also known as glymes, are chemicals with a very diverse range of uses, not least thanks to their solvent properties. Glymes offer stability and are useful for many different reactions. At the same time, there are very different boiling points and solubilities within the substance group, depending on your requirements. BTC Europe is adding a series of high-performance solvents, including glymes, to its Europe-wide portfolio from 1st July. “This will expand our range,” says Juan Tortosa, Distribution Chemicals Europe. “Solvents like this are always a useful alternative to other solvents.”
Three years ago, BASF took over the American chemicals manufacturer Novolyte, whose range included high-performance solvents such as glymes and 1,3-Dioxolane. BTC will now take on sole responsibility for European sales of all these high-performance solvents – 30 different items in total – which are produced in the USA. To do this, BTC will make use of its extensive logistics network across Europe, giving all interested customers fast access to the imports. At the same time, BTC is working closely with the Service departments at BASF. “BASF's entire Service platform is available to us, just in case there are any changes to EHS regulations or standards,” says Tortosa. In return, BTC contributes its substantial knowledge of customers and markets in the individual sectors.
