High Purity Paraffins

High purity paraffins or alkanes are saturated hydrocarbons that are linear (n-paraffins), branched (isoparaffins) or cyclic (naphthenes).  Acyclic paraffins have the formula CnH2n+2 and cyclic are CnH2n.  

Janex offers a range of high purity paraffins with a minimum purity of 95%, up to those with 99.9% purity, the latter requiring dedicated transport solutions.  Core markets and applications for these high purity products include refrigerants, blowing agents and solvents for manufacture of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and use in agrichemical, electrical and many other industries.


Main Applications:

Propane (R290) and iso-butane (R600a) are used as natural refrigerants.

Propane, n-butane, iso-butane and pentanes are used as foaming/blowing agents to expand polyethylene, polypropylene, polystyrene and polyurethane.

Liquid paraffins are often used as solvents, reaction medium, carriers, or for extraction purposes across a wide range of industries.
