Used as a raw material for the production of polyester fibers and resins, coatings, dyes and pesticides. Used as a chromatographic standard and solvent, also used in organic synthesis. Additives for rubber, paint solvents and aerospace power fuels. It is used to produce terephthalic acid, and then to produce polyester resins such as ethylene terephthalate and butylene glycol. Polyester resin is a raw material for producing polyester fiber, polyester sheet and polyester hollow container. Polyamide fiber is the largest synthetic fiber in China. It is also used as a raw material for paints, dyes and pesticides.
