EZ-Blox®

 

EZ-Blox® offers a safe, cost-effective and proven alternative to MEKO. It is designed to optimize the performance of alkyd-based paint systems by preventing a surface skin from forming when the product comes into contact with atmospheric oxygen. This, in turn, improves paint performance and reduces waste.

Nadone® HDR® Cyclohexanone

 

Nadone® HDR® cyclohexanone is ideal in applications that are sensitive to oxygen or peroxide. Key benefits include: uniform evaporation, minimal moisture content, low toxicity and ecotoxicity, low volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and a good cleaning solvency. Applications range from agricultural pesticide formulations, paints and coatings to electronics, PVC adhesives and printing ink formulations.

Naxol® Cyclohexanol

 

Naxol® cyclohexanol is ideal for applications sensitive to oxygen or peroxide. These range from agricultural products and rubber to plasticizers and solvents to flavors and fragarances. Naxol® cyclohexanol has a low toxicity and ecotoxicity profile, and is produced to low moisture standards.

Sulf-N Ammonium Sulfate

 

AdvanSix Sulf-N® ammonium sulfate (21-0-0-24S) is a high-analysis fertilizer that provides efficient nitrogen and readily-available sulfur to crops. It is available in granular, standard, mid and soluble sizes.
