Phenols are some of the most important chemical compounds in industry today. They’re used for a wide variety of applications including the production of Bisphenol A, a building block of widely-used polycarbonates. Phenols are also used to produce polymers and an astounding array of resins.
Chemicals are as important for catalyzing other chemicals as they are for producing end-products. Noah Technologies works with manufacturers all over the world to supply ultra high-purity chemicals for catalytic reactions. In many cases, the success of a reaction depends on chemicals with exacting specifications.
Here are five common chemical catalysts used within the manufacturing industry.
Noah Technologies is a leading U.S. supplier of inorganic chemicals for manufacturing and research purposes. Our clients come to us looking for more than just a chemical supplier – they need a partner. We work incredibly hard to meet and exceed their requirements for everything because we recognize how critical chemical components are for an efficient, cost-effective manufacturing process.
Chemicals are an integral component of the global supply chain. Manufacturers around the world rely on chemical suppliers to be transparent, reliable, and compliant; the pressure on manufacturers to ensure the chemicals they use are verifiable is growing every year.
The chemicals you buy are only as good as the certification processes they’re subjected to.
Here at Noah Technologies, we believe that better chemicals produce better results. This is true across the board, from manufacturing work to laboratory research to industrial applications. It’s why we spend so much time and energy testing (and re-testing) the chemicals we produce and distribute to ensure they exceed the quality standards our customers expect.
There are dozens of reasons to use American-made goods, but buying American-made chemicals? Why should it matter where the chemicals manufacturers procure come from, so long as the end-product is Made in the U.S.A.?
Because the American chemical industry sets the standard for global chemical production.
Noah Technologies is proud to be an American chemical company based in San Antonio, Texas. We take the responsibility of being an “American-made” company seriously, which is why we’re so fervent about the benefits of using American chemicals. Here are a few reasons to “buy American” for your manufacturing operation to consider.
Chemical companies have a responsibility to prepare for natural disasters.
As we saw all-too-recently in Texas, natural disasters can wreak havoc on industrial operations; they don’t take exception to volatile chemical facilities. It’s in the best interest of chemical companies – and of the public – for facilities to always be adequately prepared for the worst.
Polymers are everywhere.
They’re in our packaging, our money, our cosmetics…and according to some studies, even in our drinking water. For all the “bad press” polymers – basically chains of repeated molecules – get, they’re doing a lot of unrecognized good. In fact, one of the most important ways polymers affect our daily lives is in the purification, not contamination, of our drinking water!
Building materials have come a long way since the days of mud huts and stone walls. Modern buildings are miracles of science, composed of materials that have been incrementally improved for decades and sometimes even centuries. Chemistry is playing an increasing role in the innovation of buildings – here are five building components dramatically improved through chemicals science.
Chemistry and space travel have always been inextricably linked. The first manned mission to the moon, in fact, was powered by combustion between hydrogen and oxygen. Today, advancements in chemical science hold great promise for space travel, both manned and unmanned, by improving everything from mechanics to food consumption.
How is chemistry propelling space travel into the next decade, century, and beyond? Here are some of the current projects Noah Technologies is paying close attention to.
