Cresol can be used as synthetic material additives and dye intermediates.
Used as raw material for synthetic resins, insulating paints, and antioxidants, as well as disinfectants and solvents.
Used in the production process of phenolic resin, electrical insulating paint, tricresyl phosphate, dyes, surfactants, flotation agents, lubricating oil additives, enamel solvents, preservatives, cold-proof plastic plasticizers, cracking dispersants and sebacic acid. solvents, etc. The bactericidal power of cresol is 4 times that of phenol. Usually, soapy water is added to mixed cresol to emulsify it to form the disinfectant Lysol. It is widely used in organic synthesis to separate o-, m-, and p-cresols from mixed cresols, including mixtures of m-p-cresol.
Solvent, disinfection, and antisepsis, the bactericidal power is 4 times that of carbolic acid. Synthetic resin.
The warehouse is ventilated and dried at low temperature; stored separately from oxidants.
