PAINTS + COATINGS | CYCLOHEXANE
Cyclohexane (also known as CYX, hexamethylene, hexahydrobenzene, hexanaphthene, and benzenehexahydride) is a colourless, volatile, and flammable liquid with the formula C6H12. It has a mild odour and is insoluble in water but soluble in alcohol, ether, acetone and benzene. Cyclohexane occurs naturally in petroleum crude oil, volcanic gases and cigarette smoke.
Cyclohexane is used in the nylon industry where approximately 90% of it is consumed in the industrial production of adipic acid and caprolactam, which are used to generate nylon 6 and nylon 6.6. The remaining 10% is used both as a solvent for paints, resins, varnish and oil, and as a plasticiser. Cyclohexane can also be used as an intermediate in the manufacture of other industrial chemicals such as cyclohexanone and nitrocyclohexanone.
