Phenolics

Broad product range

The RÜTGERS product range extends from phenol 99.5%, o-cresol 99% and m/p-cresol 98% to mixtures such as Novaphen SC 40, Novaphen SC 77 und Novaphen XR 40. These mixtures allow us to respond to our customers’ specific needs.

Numerous applications

Phenol from coal tar is used mainly in the manufacture of tanning agents and resins. Uses for o-cresol include phenolic resins for the foundry industry and as an intermediate, for instance, for agrochemicals. Pure m/p-cresol can likewise be converted into resins but is also used in the production of flame retardants. The most important uses for phenol/cresol/xylenol mixtures are as solvents for the coating of copper or aluminum wires. Their special properties make them crucial for wire enamels. Special blends with extremely low ion content are used for photoresist resins in the chip industry.

So that we can optimally respond to our customers and the needs of the market, RÜTGERS is subdivided into seven lines of business: Basic Aromatics, BTX/PA, Handy Chemicals, NOVARES® & Modifiers, Aromatic Chemicals, Trading and InfraTec.
