Before using any material, it is important to ensure that the personnel using it have the proper training. AdvanSix technical specialists are available to assist you in the use of our products. For complete safety and handling information, please refer to the appropriate material safety datasheet or contact us.
Naxol® cyclohexanol is a combustible material that should be handled, stored and used away from any flame source. Since cyclohexanol vapors travel with air currents, flames and sparks at remote locations on-site can ignite them. Clothes worn near cyclohexanol can retain the chemical, so do not expose any clothing used around it to flames or sparks. Cyclohexanol should not be exposed to strong oxidizing agents, as it can react violently with nitric acid and may cause uncontrolled decomposition that can result in an explosion or fire.
Alpha Methylstyrene (AMS)
Alpha methylstyrene (AMS) is a flammable liquid and vapor. High temperatures, inhibitor depletion, accidental impurities, or exposure to radiation or oxidizers may cause a spontaneous polymerizing reaction that generates heat and pressure, and vapors may form an explosive mixture with air. AMS vapors can be heavier than air, and may travel along the ground to a distant source of ignition and flash back. It can obtain an electrostatic charge during processing activities, such as storage, mixing, filtering or pumping. Keep this material in a cool, well-ventilated place and eliminate all sources of ignition. Be sure to bond and ground containers when transferring AMS.
Nadone® cyclohexanone is combustible in liquid and vapor form. Cyclohexanone vapors travel with air currents, so flames and sparks at remote locations on-site can ignite them and cause an explosion. Clothes worn near cyclohexanone can retain the chemical, so do not expose any clothing used around it to flames or sparks. Cyclohexanone should not be exposed to strong oxidizing agents, as it may cause uncontrolled decomposition that can result in an explosion or fire.
Methyl Ethyl Ketoxime (MEKO)
Methyl ethyl ketoxime (MEKO) is a combustible liquid. Store it in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area suitable for flammable liquids. Keep MEKO away from strong acids and oxidizers, and ensure containers are upright and tightly closed at all times. MEKO should be kept away from heat, open flames, acids and oxidizers. Always vent MEKO containers before opening them.
