Raw and intermediate chemical products cover a wide variety of substances intended for different applications. They are used, for example, in the manufacture of cosmetics and detergents, as well as formulations in heavy industry (mining, metallurgy, constructions, and power generation). Basic chemicals play an important role in the synthesis of specific compounds, including active substances contained in drugs and plant protection products. They are also used as additives in plastics, paints, lacquers and coatings. PCC Group, thanks to its modern systems, is a manufacturer of high quality raw chemicals, which perfectly complement the offer of specialised products and ready-to-use goods.
PCC Group is a manufacturer of phenol-based products intended for subsequent processing in the chemical industry. Methods for the synthesis of these compounds are based on ion exchange resins as catalysts and are characterised by high reaction selectivity, which ensures the highest quality with subsequent reduction of negative impact on the natural environment. Dodecylphenol, one of the offered raw chemical products, is used in the manufacture of fuels and oils, paints, lacquers, and compositions for mining industry. Nonylphenol and nonylphenol LV (with reduced viscosity) are additional items in our portfolio. These raw materials are ingredient in production of various specialised resins, epoxy and phenol resins, and industrial surfactants. These substances are also intermediates in manufacturing of antioxidants, paints, lacquers, coating resins and additives used in the tire and mining industries.
Thanks to one of the most high-tech membrane electrolysis installations in Europe, PCC Group is a manufacturer of high quality soda lye, caustic soda and sodium hypochlorite. Chlorine, chlorobenzene and hydrochloric acid in unique concentrations and outstanding purity are also available in our range. These are basic raw chemicals used mostly in the manufacture of various preparations in the sectors of detergents, cosmetics, household chemistry and industrial cleaning agents. Chlorine derivatives are used as basic ingredients in washing and disinfecting agents, cleaning, degreasing, bleaching, and descaling formulations. Caustic soda and soda lye, on the other hand, are predominantly used for the manufacture of ionic surfactants, which are the main ingredient of washing powders. Moreover, chlorinated alkalies are used in different industrial branches, including textiles, pharmaceuticals, plant protection products, food, metallurgy, mining, and power generation.
PCC Group is also a supplier of monochloroacetic acid (MCA), a highly reactive raw material used in the production of various chemical compounds. This product is offered in two grades: chloroacetic acid 80% H-P, as a high purity preparation, and chloroacetic acid 80% U-P, with the highest purity available on the market. Most importantly, this compound is an ingredient in the manufacturing of carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC), which is commonly used in the food and pharmaceutical industries, as well as 2,4-D — one of the most widely available herbicides belonging to the group of growth regulators. Moreover, MCA is utilised as a raw material in production of dyes, polymer additives, cosmetics, and numerous substances for the pharmaceutical industry.
PCC Group portfolio also includes compounds of acid chlorides, such as phosphorous oxychloride and phosphorus trichloride. These are high purity intermediate products used in the manufacture of phosphorus and chlorine containing chemicals. The compounds are employed as substrates in the synthesis of active compounds of drugs and plant protection products. Phosphorus trichloride and phosphorous oxychloride are also used in the manufacturing of a wide variety of plastic additives, including flame retardants, plasticizers, and antioxidants.
The PCC Group product portfolio also covers components for preparations of highly specialised uses. This group contains products for the manufacture of the following:
