Mixed Xylenes

Through dependable logistics and extensive global network of partners, we offer optimal product availability for mixed xylenes in bulk to clients all over the world competitively.

Xylenes are produced by catalytic reforming and also by coal carbonization in the manufacture of coke fuel.

Mixed Xylenes has three isomers – ortho, meta and paraxylene – typically containing 40% to about 60% m-xylene and up to 20% each of o-xylene and p-xylene and in addition, a certain amount of ethylbenzene. Meta-xylene, o-xylene and p-xylene are important industrial chemicals used in various industrial applications.

The major industrial application of meta-xylene is in the production of isophthalic acid. Isophthalic acid is used as a copolymerizing monomer to alter the properties of polyethylene terephthalate (PET), making PET more suitable for manufacture of plastic bottles for soft drinks.

P-xylene is used in the synthesis of polyester resins and fibres, solvents and pharmaceuticals among others. Ortho-xylene is majorly used in the manufacture of phthalic anhydride which is a principal commercial form of phthalic acid. Subsequently, phthalic acid is primarily used as a chemical intermediate in the production of from vinyl chloride. Phthalate esters, which function as plasticizers are derived from phthalic anhydride.

Berium Group offers high purity and quality mixed xylene aromatic for wide range of industrial applications. Xylene is considered a dangerous commodity (hazardous material). We supply xylene within the relevant established safety and preventive guidelines for transportation.
