1,3-Butadiene Supplier to Portland

Portland businesses who need 1,3-butadiene have an exemplary producer in your neighborhood at Cryo-Source. 1,3-butadiene is a flammable, colorless gas shipped as a liquid under its own vapor pressure.

1,3-butadiene is a specialty olefin initially synthesized in large quantities to supply the synthetic rubber business that grew because of the lack of natural rubber during World War II.

These days, the necessity for rubber tires still defines the majority of all 1,3-Butadiene production. Additional 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, collected 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.
