Major Applications

Carbon disulfide plays a vital role in many of today's industrial processes. It is a main building block in the production of agricultural chemicals including some of the fungicides and soil fumigants that allow farmers to increase yields.  It is also used to produce industrial chemicals like xanthates used in mining, rayon used in clothing and as a reaction agent for rubber vulcanization accelerator.  CS2 is consumed in the production of a variety of pharmaceuticals. Carbon Disulfide is also an effective solvent for oils, waxes, sulfur and sulfur compounds. Even your kitchen sponges are produced using CS2.



As part of our Responsible Care Program we are responsible for safe and environmentally sound handling of our Carbon Disulfide at our plants, in transit, and at your location. To that end, our Technical Service Experts offer support to our customers regarding all technical and safety issues, and supply you with detailed information.
