Markets for naphthalene vary widely. Naphthalene can be sulfonated for use in concrete as a super-plasticizer, in leather tanning, in anti-caking applications, and as a dispersant in specialty applications. Other applications include lubricants and pharmaceuticals.


Our low color, low sulfur naphthalene is the only domestic supply of refined petrochemical naphthalene for use in color sensitive applications or in applications that require higher purity (>99%), even in pharmaceuticals.
