Purity should be the top property consideration when purchasing pentaerythritol and dipentaerythritol to efficiently lower cost and production time.

2024-04-16

Methanol is a chemical solvent that is widely used by the chemical industry. LCY apply methanol from natural gas by converting methane through a synthetization process. In keeping with the spirit of innovation, LCY not only seeks to optimize the manufacturing process through cutting-edge technology such as biodegradation but also taps into the use of biomass material to increase products’ green competitive advantage.


There are various methanol downstream products; among them, LCY produces pentaerythritol and dipentaerythritol through repeated concentration and crystallization; LCY’s pentaerythritol and dipentaerythritol boost superior quality when compared to industry peers with a wide range of applications. In addition, dipentaerythritol is applicable to high-end derivative products and is often used in 5G-related productions.


Dipentaerythritol is a white crystalline polyol organic powder, with its structural formula containing six hydroxyl groups, two more than pentaerythritol, which allows dipentaerythritol to react with more substances. Dipentaerythritol produced by LCY has excellent color and particle size. It is high in purity and has very consistent quality, which can shorten manufacturing processing time and reduce cost, making it a top choice for adaptation in the electronics, aviation and plastic industries.


In this article, we will introduce the various industries and the types of applications for pentaerythritol and dipentaerythritol.


Lubricant for Precision Machinery (dipentaerythritol)

Fatty acid esters produced by dipentaerythritol are material of high-performing lubricant that is currently used in precision machinery by a wide range of industries. Lubricants made from dipentaerythritol have low volatility and anti-wear properties, which can significantly save energy. They also have excellent adaptability to both high and low temperatures, leading to application in the aviation industry.


In addition to aircraft application by the aviation industry, the textile industry also frequently uses lubricants made from dipentaerythritol to eliminate static, as it is often generated from friction in the manufacturing process. The lubricant enhances stable production by minimizing friction on the bearing.


It is worth noting that lubricants are often applicable in metallic processing machinery under high temperatures.


UV Curing Resins (dipentaerythritol)

UV curing is a technology that was developed in the 1970’s. UV curing reaction does not require the use of solvents. Since resin curing and coating can be quickly cross-linked through UV light at room temperature and pressure, it can also be considered a “green technology.”


UV-curing resins are made from dipentaerythritol, with a wide range of applications in a variety of industries. For example, they can be used to keep fine components in place when used by the electronics and semiconductor industries. When used by the printing industry, it can very effectively adhere to the products while drying quickly to increase printing efficiency.


In addition to the aforementioned industries, UV curing resins are often used by the cosmetics and medical industries. White resins for teeth filling and the clear coating applied to nails at the end of a phototherapy nail session are both examples of UV curing resins produced from dipentaerythritol.


Antioxidant for Industrial rubber and plastic derivatives (pentaerythritol)

Antioxidants are additives that are primarily used to inhibit oxidation in cells or organisms. Oxidation can produce highly active free radicals, while antioxidants can effectively inhibit oxidation through neutralizing free radicals as a part of the reduction-oxidation reaction (Redox) process.

Wellbeing commercials often advertise natural antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables that can delay the process of aging through the reduction of free radicals. Similarly, the same concept works for industrial antioxidants.


LCY’s pentaerythritol is a highly effective antioxidant due to its symmetric molecular structure and hydroxyl groups, which can cause esterification of pentaerythritol. When used by the tire and rubber industry, antioxidant can inhibit the oxidation of macromolecules to prevent rubber and plastic derivatives cracking and prolong service life. Antioxidant is also widely applicable in the cosmetics/beauty care and biotechnology/pharmaceutical industries to stabilize products’ active performance.


Alkyd Resin for Metal and Plastic Coating (pentaerythritol & dipentaerythritol)

Alkyd resins (paint) are derived from the complexation between polyols, organic polyacids and vegetable oils. Pentaerythritol and dipentaerythritol produced by LCY are amongst the purest polyols in the industry; when used to produce alkyd resins, the paint would have a shorter drying time, as well as brighter and fuller colors.


Alkyd resin application spans from everyday products to high-tech industries. For example, large furniture is sprayed with alkyd resin coating before being shipped out of the factory; the coating forms a hard glossy finish which protects the furniture from scratching. In addition, alkyd resins can be applied through brushing, rolling, or spraying, all of which would have the same drying speed and gloss retention performance.



The information above has provided an overview of pentaerythritol and dipentaerythritols’ critical role as a chemical intermediate for the chemical industry. It is widely used by various industries to enhance stable production and increase efficiency.
