  • Description:

Cyclohexanone is a colorless to pale yellow liquid with a sweet peppermint odor. Due to its low evaporation rate, it can be used as a retarder in many formulations. It is a strong solvent in many formulations of paints, coatings, inks and adhesives. Also, it is a viscosity suppressor for resin manufacturing. Cyclohexanone can be consumed in the process of many polymers and plastics.
