Chemical Grade Propylene
C3H6
polymer grade (PG, 99.5% minimum purity); chemical grade (CG, 90-96% minimum purity); and refinery grade (RG, 50-70% minimum purity).
Propylene is a major industrial chemical intermediate that serves as building block for an array of chemical and plastic products. The Propylene market is dominated by the PG Propylene, which is mainly used in polymers production. RG Propylene, which is obtained from refinery processes, is used in liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) for thermal purposes or as an octane-enhancing component in motor gasoline.

Propylene (a.k.a. Propene, Methyl Ethylene) has been established as a major component of the global olefins business, second only to ethylene. Having one double bond, this was the first petrochemical employed on an industrial scale, and is the second in natural abundance. Being a byproduct in ethylene production, propene’s development and expansion grew tremendously since 1965, due to ethylene's success as a chemical building block.
