DYM Resources starts supplies for isopropyl alcohol for disinfection

The ongoing COVID-19 crisis increased demand for the disinfectant products since regular disinfection helps to limit the virus spread. Realizing the importance of the topic, DYM Resources is getting into the act: we added a new product IPA (isopropyl alcohol) into our chemicals segment. This is an essential step in helping to meet the global demand for hand sanitizers and surface disinfectants.

IPA is an inexpensive solvent used as a common ingredient in chemicals such as antiseptics, disinfectants, and detergents. It can also be used in aftershave lotions, hand lotions, and other cosmetics.

“We expect long term demand for disinfection as the world will continue to fight the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic most likely till the end of this year. Based on previous virus outbreaks in Asia, the demand for sanitizing materials will remain strong during several months after the crisis is over”

Denis Varaksin, managing director of DYM Resources

INEOS, one of the world’s largest chemical producers, has planned to build two new factories in 10 days to produce more IPA. Currently the company has IPA production capacities of 155,000 tons/year at Moers and of 85,000 tons/year in Herne (both cities are in Germany), so they are planning to increase these numbers dramatically.

According to Technavio report Isopropyl Alcohol Market by Application and Geography – Forecast and Analysis 2020-2024, “The isopropyl alcohol market size has the potential to grow by 521.75 thousand tons during 2020-2024, and the market’s growth momentum will accelerate during the forecast period.”

Despite falling crude oil prices, value of isopropyl alcohol has increased almost three times compared to average prices of 2019. In times of shortage professional supply chain solutions are needed and DYM Resources expertise is here to help clients globally.

DYM Resources can supply cosmetic grade IPA in drums and iso-containers. Please find a Cerfiticate of Quality below.
