Chlorosilanes
Chlorosilanes
Chlorosilanes are a group of reactive chemical compounds containing silicon bonded to up to four chlorine atoms, hydrogen, and/or alkyl groups. Chlorosilanes are used e.g. as coatings for silicon and glass surfaces. Among the Chlorosilanes, methylchlorosilanes (specially dimethyldichlorosilane) are of major importance, since they are the monomeric intermediates used for the production of silicones. These chemicals have one to three methyl groups; they are produced on commercial scale by the so-called direct process, based on the reaction of silicon with chloromethane at high temperatures, in the presence of copper catalysts.
Chlorosilanes are primarily used in the silicone industry. They are employed as raw material for the production of silicones, and to impart and improve specific properties of silicones and silicone-based polymers. They are also used in the production of fumed silica and high purity silicon metal; surface treatments; as intermediate for silane adhesion promoters; and coupling agents.

Updated Reports Examining Chlorosilanes Manufacturing Costs

Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand Commodity Cost of Production reports analyzing the costs of Chlorosilanes manufacturing processes. Each report describes an industrial plant based on a specific Chlorosilanes process. The report also presents an independent analysis of the costs of Chlorosilanes production, encompassing plant capital costs (capex) and plant operating costs (opex). All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q4 2023).

Mixed Methylchlorosilanes Production

This report presents the economics of Mixed Methylchlorosilanes (mostly dimethyldichlorosilanes) production, starting from silicon and methyl chloride. The economic analysis approaches a plant located in the United States. In this process, methyl chloride and silicon powder are reacted in a fluidized bed reactor with copper catalyst, yielding the methylchlorosilanes.

Details: 180 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   109 pages   From $799 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Chlorosilanes E11A target a 180 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Phenylchlorosilanes Production

This report presents a feasibility analysis of Phenylmethyldichlorosilanes production starting from benzene and methyldichlorosilanes. In this batch process, benzene and methyldichlorosilane are mixed with a boron trichloride solution - which works as catalyst for the reaction. The study assumes a plant located in the United States.

Details: 3 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $1,999 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Chlorosilanes E21A target a 3 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Vinylchlorosilanes Production

This report presents a techno-economic study of Vinylmethyldichlorosilane production using a conventional industrial process based on high temperature condensation of vinyl chloride with methyldichlorosilane. The economic analysis is based on a plant located in the United States.

Details: 1.50 kta United States-based plant   |   Q4 2023   |   107 pages   From $1,999 USD

The cost analyses presented in the report Chlorosilanes E31A target a 1.50 kta (kilometric tons per annum) United States-based plant. For those interested in cost analyses considering other plant capacities and/or locations, Intratec offers a customized analysis as an optional feature.

Intratec Methodology. Intratec distilled its expertise, gained from more than a decade of supporting companies worldwide in the analysis of commodities markets and process economics, and developed a consistent report development methodology.

The methodology ensures a holistic, coherent, and consistent techno-economic evaluation, guiding the development of a report that allows readers to fully understand a specific process technology for the production of a commodity. In addition to being based on a common methodology, all Intratec reports that approach industrial processes have a common structure, i.e., indexes, tables and charts share similar standards. This ensures that Intratec’s readers know upfront what they will get and, more than that, will be able to compare technologies addressed in different reports.

Our methodology is continuously tested and proven by the many corporations involved with the commodities sector, R&D centers, EPC companies, financial institutions and government agencies that rely on our reports.
