CAS NO: 593-70-4
Petroleum hydrocarbons are a group of compounds composed of hydrogen and carbon. Among them, CAS No:593-70-4 is a light petroleum hydrocarbon, which belongs to the group of light hydrocarbon mixtures called petroleum ether or petroleum naphtha. This light petroleum hydrocarbon has a boiling temperature range of 40℃ to 80℃, and is a colorless and nearly odorless liquid.
Petroleum hydrocarbons, including CAS No:593-70-4, are widely used in many industries ranging from petroleum refining, rubber and plastics manufacturing and pharmaceutical production. In petroleum refining, this light hydrocarbon is used for solvent extraction of various oils and waxes from residues. It is also used to fractionate a wide range of oils and waxes from crude oil to produce a specific range of hydrocarbons. In addition, petroleum hydrocarbons such as CAS No:593-70-4 are also used for distillation and for treating rubber products, in order to separate rubber from acetates and reduce the viscosity of the rubber and to facilitate its processing. As a solvent, it is used in the manufacturing of aromatic hydrocarbons, resin-based lubricants and wax. Furthermore, it is also used as a volatility improvement agent in diesel fuel, antifreeze, pharmaceuticals and dyes production.
CAS No:593-70-4, light petroleum hydrocarbons, should be stored in a cool, dry and well-ventilated space away from direct sunlight and heat, and should be handled with appropriate safety measures and appropriate personal protective equipment.
Petroleum hydrocarbons, including CAS No:593-70-4, are classified as flammable, and due to its low flash point, special care should always be taken when handling and storing it. They also may have an adverse effect on the human body; contact with skin is to be avoided, inhalation of vapors is to be avoided, and contact with eyes is especially to be avoided.
