How Our Products Are Used

Our chemicals are used in a range of printing materials.

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 Diallylamine (DALA)


AdvanSix Diallylamine (DALA) is a colorless to yellow, flammable, and corrosive liquid that emits a pungent, ammonia-like odor. While it is soluble in ethanol, benzene, and ethyl acetate, it displays limited solubility in water. Under recommended storage conditions, DALA remains stable. This versatile chemical compound is commonly harnessed in the production of pharmaceuticals, resins, and paper. It serves as a crucial raw material for manufacturing various crop protection products. Furthermore, DALA finds extensive use as a solvent and functions as a corrosion inhibitor, ore flotation agent, and a key component in rubber processing. Its diverse applications make it an essential ingredient across several industries.
