MDI (a.k.a. Methylene Diphenyl Diisocyanate) is an aromatic diisocyanate widely applied in the production of polyurethanes. It is produced by the reaction of aniline and formaldehyde, using hydrochloric acid as catalyst, yielding diamine precursors, which are then treated with phosgene, resulting in MDI. It appears as a light-yellow, fused solid, which is soluble in acetone, benzene, kerosene, and nitrobenzene.
Intratec offers professional, easy-to-understand reports examining MDI production. Each study describes an industrial plant, including main process units and site infrastructure, and presents an independent analysis of capital and operating costs. All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (2019/20).
