Major Applications

Carbon disulfide (CS2) 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 accelerators used in rubber vulcanization. CS2 is also consumed in the production of a variety of pharmaceuticals and is 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 the safe and environmentally sound handling of Carbon Disulfide at our plants, in transit, and at your location. To that end, our regionally based Technical Service Experts offer support to our customers regarding all technical and safety issues, and supply them with extensive and detailed product information. Safety audits are offered for customer's unloading stations and storage facilities and design support is available for those considering using CS2 for the first time. Carbon Disulfide safety seminars are periodically held at our production locations, but we can also arrange tailor-made safety training at your site.
