1. Polymers

Polymers are large molecules (macromolecules) which are composed of several subunits connected in a repeated manner. There are both natural and synthetic polymers playing an important role in every aspect of human life. Several small molecules (monomers) polymerize and shape a polymer. Plastic is a familiar name which is often used as a synonym for polymer and resin. Among unique physical properties of polymers, we can refer to viscoelasticity, toughness and formation of glass and semi-crystal structures. Some of the main polymer products provided by our petrochemical products sector are mentioned below:

This petrochemical product is used in producing some kinds of pipe resistants to corrosion, bottles, plastic lumbers, plastic surgery, stone paper, fireworks, bottle caps, boats, manners, frames of backpack, folding chair, geomembranes, etc. It can be recycled and its identification code of resin is 2. 
• Epoxy:
This additive can result in beneficial mechanical properties as well as high resistance to heat and chemicals. Epoxy is used for a variety of applications such as electric applications, paint brush production, metal coating, reinforced plastics, adhesives, glues, composite materials, fiberglass, paints, etc.

2. Fertilizers and related substances

Almost fifty percent of the world’s food depends on fertilizers application. As the world’s population is growing every day, the need for efficient food supply is more demanding than ever. Fertilizers are categorized in two groups of organic and chemical fertilizers. The advantage of chemical or synthetic fertilizers is that they are low cost. Among our company’s products, fertilizers and related substances are one of the most practical and widely used petrochemical products which are provide cost efficiently.
