About Trimethylolpropane. Trimethylolpropane (a.k.a. TMP) is an organic compound, in the alcohol class, specifically classified as a triol. It is a white, odorless salt, soluble in water and in most organic solvents, with hygroscopic characteristics. Trimethylolpropane is considered a building block in the polymer industry, as it is largely used as an additive or intermediate in the production of a broad range of plastics and polymers.

Chemical Formula. C6H14O3

Commercial Grades. Technical grade; lubricant grade; liquid form (hot melt)

Uses. Trimethylolpropane is largely used as an additive or intermediate in the production of a broad range of plastics and polymers. By way of illustration, this polyol is used in the manufacture of urethanes and polyester resins., lubricants, lacquers, glues, adhesives, dyes, pigments, paints, silicone products, textile finisher and food packaging adhesive compound.
