6-Hexanolactone is a new polyester monomer. The great majority of caprolactone is consumed as a precursor to caprolactam.
6-Hexanolactone is also a monomer used in the manufacture of highly specialised polymer.
6-Hexanolactone is mainly used in synthetic rubber, synthetic fiber and synthetic resin production.
6-Hexanolactone is also used in the manufacture of caprolactam and adipic acid, adhesives, paint, epoxy thinners and solvent.
