1,3-Butadiene Supplier to Sioux Falls

Sioux Falls businesses who need 1,3-butadiene have a well-known local producer at A-OX Welding Supply. 1,3-butadiene is a colorless, flammable gas delivered as a liquid under its own vapor pressure.

1,3-butadiene is a specialty olefin originally created in large volumes to facilitate the synthetic rubber business that blossomed because of the shortage of natural rubber during World War II.

Today, the necessity for rubber tires still accounts for the majority of all 1,3-Butadiene production. Continuing research in specialty rubber and related polymers drives the demand for cylinder quantities of High Purity 1,3-Butadiene. It is also used in specialty organic chemical synthesis, and in mixtures, as a standard for environmental air monitoring.

Most 1,3-Butadiene production relies on n-butane as a starting material, stripped from midstream natural gas processing plants. High Purity 1,3-Butadiene can be created from acetylene, 1-butene and ethanol, generally however, high purity 1,3-butadiene is distilled from the commercial n-butane process.
