Products Made At this Plant

Product Overview: The AdvanSix Frankford facility is one of North America’s largest producers of phenol, which is sold to customers around the world. This phenol is also shipped to our Hopewell, Virginia, site, where it is used to make caprolactam, the primary feedstock in the production of nylon polymer, which is used in carpet fibers, plastics and films. The Frankford plant also produces other chemical intermediates, including acetone and alpha-methylstyrene, which are ultimately used in a variety of applications including solvents, resins and plastics.

AdvanSix Acetone NF Grade


Acetone (also known as dimethyl ketone and 2-propanone) is a clear, colorless, low-boiling, flammable, volatile liquid characterized by rapid evaporation and a faintly aromatic, sweetish odor. It is readily miscible in most organic solvents and completely miscible, in all proportions, in water. Acetone is one of the simplest aliphatic ketones, and is an excellent solvent for a wide range of gums, resins, waxes, fats, greases, oils, dyestuffs and cellulosics. It is widely used as a chemical intermediate in the production of methyl isobutyl ketone and other solvents, and in the production of such important chemicals as bis-phenol-A and methyl methacrylate. It is also used in the manufacture of a wide variety of coatings and plastics

AdvanSix Alpha Methylstyrene (AMS)


Alpha methylstyrene (AMS) from AdvanSix is produced by the partial oxidation of cumene. It is commonly used in a variety of applications to improve product functionality, including acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastics, pure monomer tackifying resins and water-based styrene acrylic inks.
