EXAMPLES OF USE

Customers use AdvanSix chemical intermediates to make a wide range of products for end consumers.

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.

AdvanSix Phenol - High Purity Grade

 

High-purity phenol from AdvanSix is used for a variety of applications requiring exceptional quality and consistency. Common uses range from herbicides, pharmaceuticals, dyes and polycarbonates to automotive glazing, can coatings, adhesives, electronic insulators, and in phenolic resinsparts, optical media, glazing, can coatings, adhesives, electronic insulators, and in phenolic resins.

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.
