TPA (Terephthalic Acid)
TPA is generally called Terephthalic Acid, and it is a pure white powder
manufactured through a process of oxidation, purification, separation
and drying with Para-Xylene refined from crude oil as a primary raw material.
QTA & PTA
TPA is divided into QTA (Qualified Terephthalic Acid) and PTA (Purified Terephthalic Acid)
and Samnam Petrochemical is responding to customers' needs by producing these two products.
PTA (Purified Terephthalic Acid) QTA (Qualified Terephthalic Acid)
In particular, QTA which was introduced in Korea for the first time with a new technique has
a competitive price and excellent quality contributing to enhancing customers' cost competitiveness and corporate value. It has also obtained certifications such as ISO, OHSAS, KOSHA, and PSM/SMS from domestic and international specialized institutions.
Samnam Petrochemical is expanding its business to overseas markets including China which is the largest TPA market as well as the EU and Middle East while strengthening our abilities through continuous technology exchanges with production plants in Japan, Indonesia and India.
There are various and a large number of indicator items that represent the quality of TPA. However, the following are specific indicators that represent the intrinsic physical properties:
|Product name||TPA : Terephthalic Acid|
|Melting point||300℃ (sublimation)|
|Vapor pressure||0.5mmHg (120℃)|
with high utilization
TPA is used for polyester fibers, resin films, paints and raw primary material for engineering plastics by its excellent heat resistance, abrasion resistance and insulation properties. In addition to this, its use is gradually expanding into various fields such as various bottles, electrical/electronic products, industrial materials, building materials and mechanical parts and it is attracting attention as a high-value-added material that is competitive in all aspects such as in price and quality.
