Cyclohexylamine

Cyclohexylamine is a colorless organic liquid having a substituent of an amine group. Cyclohexylamine is used in low-pressure boilers where the condensate works for a longer period of time. It can remain along with condensate steam at various steam pressures which cannot be done with other neutralizing amines. It is a metabolite of cyclamate and has been found to be useful in production of other organic compounds.

Cyclohexylamine is used especially for the industrial water treatment, for the production of cure accelerator, for the manufacturing of synthetic sweeteners and in a rubber industry for the production of vulcanization accelerators.

On the basis of end user demands and desires, industrial Cyclohexylamine can be utilized for various respective applications for various respective industries like agriculture, rubber, food, oil, pharma, petroleum and textile industries.

Handling Measures
and Precautions

DG Cargo. Caustic and toxic. Vapours severely irritate eyes and airways. Possible risk of impaired fertility. Proper human safety products such as splash goggles, lab coat, dust and vapour respirator, NIOSH approved gloves and boots should be worn while handling and applying chemicals. Splashes on the skin should be washed off with water immediately. In case of splashing into the eyes, flush them with fresh water and obtain medical attention. Should not be injected. Kindly refer SDS for more details.

Storage

Cyclohexylamine should be stored in original vented containers, away from heat, direct sunlight and combustibles. Store in a cool and dry place. Kindly refer SDS for details.
