UBE-ChemicalsUBE has launched glycerine carbonate, a mostly bio-based hydroxyl-functional carbonate that can be used in several applications as a raw material or active solvent.

Different Functions of UBE’s Glycerine Carbonate


UBE’s glycerine carbonate can be used in high performance coatings, adhesives and sealants, cosmetics & plastic additives. Through the improvement of formulations, the newly obtained glycerine carbonate can act as a solvent, diluent, plasticizer, or compatibilizer for different systems of solvents in various applications, including electrolytes.

Due to its dual functionality, UBE’s glycerine carbonate may also be used as synthetic intermediates, chain extender and cross-linkage. It can react with amines to make urethane bonding and act as blocking agent for isocyanates.
