Xylene, General specification:
Xylene is a colorless liquid and vapor. Xylene is not soluble in water and will float on top of denser water if combined. It is flammable at room temperature. It was named after xylong, the Greek word for wood, because it was found in crude wood spirit. The chemical formula for xylene is C8H10, or more specifically (C6H4)(CH3)2. Other synonyms for xylene are dimethyl benzene, methyl toluene, xylol and mixed xylenes. Xylene’s structure consists of two methyl groups attached to a six-carbon ring. There are three main isomers of xylene, called ortho-xylene, meta-xylene and paraxylene. A fourth isomer is ethylbenzene. Meta-xylene is a main component of commercial-grade xylene. Paraxylene boasts a number of uses in the polymer industry. Xylene is heavier than air. It is a volatile liquid giving off its gas. The nauseatingly sweet smell of xylene serves as a warning for its toxic nature. This smell can be detected in air concentrations as low as one part per million (PPM) Xylene can react with strong acids and oxidizers.
Xylene is one of the top chemicals produced in the world, and it is commonly derived from crude petroleum. There are many uses of xylene, both in its pure state and in compounds. It is widely used in several industries as well as in dental and medical arenas.
In histology, xylene is used to process and stain tissues. These tissues can then be used in microscopy. One of the chief uses of xylene is as a lubricant, and it is so used in motor oil or brake fluid. Xylene’s powerful solvent properties are used in printing, rubber and leather processing. Xylene is a component of lubricants in motor oil, paints and paint thinners, polishes, waxes, antifreeze, sealants, adhesives, and even gasoline and cigarettes. Xylene is used in some glue. Xylene is also used as a cleaner.Additional uses of xylene include its addition to pesticides and disinfectants.
Xylene, normally offered in 220kg steel Drum. Palleting is possible for each 4 Xylene drums. However according to customer inquiries it is capable to offer in Bulk.
