Trimethylolpropane (TMP)

About three fourths of the TMP produced is converted to polyurethane and alkyd resins used in high durability coatings. A significant percentage of TMP is converted to neopolyol ester resins used in synthetic aircraft gas turbine lubricants. TMP is also converted to TMP acrylates used in ultra violet curable coatings; and to TMP trinitrate, used in explosives.
