Application: Cyclohexane is a cycloalkane compound commonly used as an organic solvent and as a precursor in nylon production. The majority of cyclohexane produced is consumed in the production of cyclohecanol and cyclohexanone (or a mixture of the two, “KA oil”). These compounds are then used to make adipic acid and caprolactam which are major components in the manufacturing of nylon 6 and nylon 6,6.
Compatibility: Cyclohexane is incompatible with polypropylene and very strong acids. It is largely unreactive as a non-polar, hydrophobic hydrocarbon. Please see SDS for full safety and compatibility information.
Packaging Options: Cyclohexane is typically available in drums, totes, and bulk. Contact us or ask your representative for further information.
