Siloxanes
Siloxanes
Siloxanes are characterised by a chain of alternating silicon and oxygen atoms. A long chain of siloxane groups is called a silicone or a silicone polymer. Siloxanes differ in molecular weight, shape and functional chemical groups attached to the siliconoxygen backbone. The most important siloxane building block is the dimethyl-siloxane group, a large size group (10 atoms per unit), with moderate ability to accept hydrogen bonds. These characteristics lead to differences in their capacity to interact with the environment such as water and organic carbon in soil/sediment and lipids in biota, compared to carbon-based hydrophobic organic compounds. Siloxanes are used in sealants, adhesives, coatings, plastics, cosmetics, medical devices, hygiene products, food contact materials, and other industrial applications.

All reports are based on the most recent economic data available (Q2 2019).

You can find below reports focused on Siloxanes production processes currently offered by Intratec. If none of the off-the-shelf reports listed below fits your needs, you can request a bespoke report tailored to your needs, for as low as USD 2,900!

Siloxanes Production Process | Siloxanes E11A

This report presents the economics of Octamethylcyclotetrasiloxane production via dimethyldichlorosilanes hydrolysis. The study assumes a conventional plant located on the US Gulf Coast receiving a feed of dimethyldichlorosilanes. Cyclization is performed by heating the hydrolysis mixture with potassium hydroxide.

Details: 140 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   106 pages   From $1,999

The cost analyses presented in the report Siloxanes E11A target a 140 kta (kilometric tons per annun) 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.

Siloxanes Production Process | Siloxanes E21A

In this study, the economics of Hexamethyldisiloxane production is analyzed. The analysis assumes a plant also located in the US Gulf Coast receiving trimethylchlorosilane and generating Hexamethyldisiloxane via hydrolysis of the starting material.

Details: 8 kta United States-based plant   |   Q2 2019   |   106 pages   From $799

The cost analyses presented in the report Siloxanes E21A target a 8 kta (kilometric tons per annun) 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.
