n-HEXANE, a colorless liquid with a slightly disagreeable odor, is the straight-chain alkane with six carbon atoms. It evaporates very easily into the air and dissolves and highly flammable It is insoluble in water and miscible with alcohol, chloroform, and ether. It is used primarily to produce solvents when it is mixed with similar chemicals. Common names for these solvents are commercial hexane, mixed hexanes, petroleum ether, and petroleum naphtha. The major use n-hexane is to extract vegetable oils from crops due to its narrow distillation range and selective power. Its wide usages are in the rubber industry as a base for rubber cement and in tyre manufacture and in contact adhesives, paints and inks, where fast drying and ability to suspend are required.Application is also found in the manufacture of SBR rubber where hexane is used as a medium in the polymerisation process.
In industry, hexanes are used in the formulation of glues for shoes, leather products, and roofing. They are also used to extract cooking oils(such as canola oil) from seeds, for cleansing and degreasing a variety of items, and in textile manufacturing.
A typical laboratory use of hexanes is to extract oil and grease contaminants from water and soil for analysis. Since hexane cannot be easily deprotonated, it is used in the laboratory for reactions that involve very strong bases, such as the preparation of organolithiums. For example, butyllithiums are typically supplied as a hexane solution.
Liaoning Yixin Chemical Co., Ltd., formerly known as Liaoyang Chemical Yutian Group headquarters is located in the beautiful ancient city of Liaoyang, 70 km south of Shenyang, 300 km north of Dalian, Shenyang Taoxian Airport, Dalian, Shenyang-Dalian Highway comprehensive cross phase, accessible, geographic location.
Founded in 2003, after years of tireless efforts and hard work, our company has developed into a production, research and development, operations, transportation in one of the large private chemical companies. With the continuous expansion of the sales market, the existing production capacity has failed to meet customer needs, so our company invested 2 million in 2010 to re-establish a site area of approximately 150,000 square meters, production and processing capacity of 20 000 tons / month of large-scale production base. New base on the introduction of international advanced production equipment production and processing. Production process not only fill the gaps in the production of high levels of alkane solvents, product quality is comparable with international standards.
The new plant will be put into operation in the first half of 2011 test, the company retains the original product on the basis of agents operating in other refinery aromatic solvent oil 1 #, 2 #, 3 #, crude pentane II, wax, mixed trimethylbenzene crude xylene, xylene and other products. This will not only meet the needs of the domestic market, but also broke the unity of our products.
In the build Yixin Chemical brand, Liaoyang Yixin Chemical Co. insist corporate culture to enhance the core competitiveness of enterprises to establish a good image in the development community. "Line will be far from near, the endless pursuit", Liaoyang Yixin Chemical Co., Ltd. will continue to forge ahead and persistent, under the leadership of chairman and general manager Liu Xiao and Liu Yugang, solvent oil industry dedication light and heat for forging China solvent oil industry monument will never move forward.
