Utilizing SACHEM’s quaternary ammonium compounds (Quats), as strong organic bases or catalysts can adjust pH and prevent unwanted reactions. Useful in a variety of reactions, these compounds prevent typical problems associated with common volatile compounds and the addition of metal contamination. Our customers typically apply quats in field applications including polycarbonates, polyesters, silicones, polyurethanes, and rubber production. SACHEM has extensive experience in the area of phase transfer catalysis (PTC). We deliver a full portfolio of quaternary ammonium salts used in the production of many different types of polymers but especially epoxies. Whether you are designing a new process, or optimizing an existing PTC process, explore how SACHEM’s products and assistance can save time and money while increasing success in your reaction process.
