1,3-Butadiene Supplier to Auburn

Auburn businesses who buy 1,3-butadiene have a well-known local producer at Spec Air Specialty Gases. 1,3-butadiene is a flammable gas that is colorless and is shipped as a liquid under its own vapor pressure.

1,3-butadiene is a specialty olefin originally created in significant amounts to supply the synthetic rubber business that blossomed because of the lack of natural rubber during World War II.

These days, the demand for rubber tires still defines 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, 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.
