Fine Chemicals Versus Bulk Chemicals

Fine Chemicals Versus Bulk Chemicals

In previous blogs, we have touched upon the topics of different kinds of chemicals you can buy on the market. We are mentioning fine chemicals again, but if you are curious about fine chemicals versus specialty chemicals you can find the link to that blog here. Otherwise, if you are looking for information on fine chemicals versus bulk chemicals then you have found yourself in the right place. While certain chemicals are similar, there are many differences between fine chemicals versus bulk chemicals. Each serves different purposes, so let’s break them both down.

Fine Chemicals

Fine chemicals are chemical ingredients to specific formulas used in specialty chemicals. Fine chemicals are something small that is higher priced because they do come in smaller quantities. They make up specific formulas for specific chemical products, therefore they are not made in super huge quantities.

Applications of Fine Chemicals:

  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Agriculture
  • Cosmetics
  • Food
  • Photography
  • Electronics

Bulk Chemicals

On the other side of the spectrum of chemicals, not being produced in small quantities and rather in larger amounts, you have bulk chemicals. Bulk chemicals do not have specific formulas and are characterized by their quantity size that can be distributed worldwide. Prices are a lot lower compared to fine chemicals because so many bulk chemicals are made, and they are continuously made because they stay the same.

Applications/Kinds of Bulk Chemicals:

  • Methanol
  • Sulfuric Acid
  • Acetone
