According to lonzhong statistics, China's white oil production in 2018 was 1.9555 million tons, among which industrial white oil accounted for about 43 percent. In 2018, the overall supply of white oil increased and the demand remained stable, which was still a trend of oversupply. After the National Day rise in prices, is due to tight resources caused by a short-term market behavior.
With the continuous improvement of China's economic level, white oil is widely used. According to the current national standards to divide, white oil is mainly divided into: crude white oil, light white oil, industrial white oil, cosmetic grade white oil, food grade white oil and medical grade white oil. And cosmetic grade above white oil we are collectively referred to as high-grade white oil. In terms of domestic installations, the production capacity of high-grade white oil accounts for about 18%, but the actual output is less than 10% of the total output of white oil. Therefore, the domestic high-grade white oil market is still dominated by imported resources. Today we will focus on the application of industrial white oil in downstream chemical fiber and textile auxiliaries.
Industrial white oil is the most important in the whole white oil industry. Chemical fiber and textile industry account for a high proportion in the main application fields of downstream.
In the process of chemical fiber processing, it is necessary to use chemical fiber oil agent to improve the processing efficiency, quality and product performance. China is a major producer of chemical fiber. With the increase of the total amount of chemical fiber, the demand for oil is more and more large, and the demand for quality is more and more high. According to its application, chemical fiber oil agent can be divided into: polyester oil agent, acrylic oil agent, polypropylene oil agent, nylon oil agent, vinylon oil agent and viscose fiber oil agent; According to the variety of synthetic fiber can be divided into: filament oil agent and short filament oil agent. In the process of staple fiber processing, the oil content is generally controlled between 0.1% and 0.5%. The oil content of filament is generally controlled in about 0.5%, after processing oil agent is generally controlled in about 2%. Chemical fiber oil is mainly composed of smoothing agent, emulsifier and antistatic agent. White oil, as a kind of raw material which was developed earlier and available cheaply, is mainly used as smoothing agent in chemical fiber oil. Because of the different requirements on the oil in the process of processing different fibers, their corresponding oil required smoothing agent is not the same. White oil in dacron DTY oil agent, dacron FDY oil agent, polypropylene oil agent, polyamide oil agent, artificial fiber oil agent, etc. belong to the base oil, the amount of large, its amount of oil composition of 30% - 90%, or even higher. East and south China is the concentration of chemical fiber and textile industry oil.
The new domestic production capacity of white oil is expected to be about 1.345 million tons in 2019. The new installation is mainly industrial white oil, and domestic white oil oversupply has become a normal situation. Stable product quality and high-quality after-sales service will become the key for manufacturers to improve their market share.
