Use Of Acrylonitrile:

Acrylonitrile is a public basic organic chemical product, is the basic and important raw material of three major synthetic materials—synthetic fiber, synthetic rubber and plastic; the main downstream products include acrylic fiber, nitrile rubber and ABS resin, etc. The consumption of acrylic fiber is accounting for 44% of total quantity of Acrylonitrile. In addition, Acrylonitrile can be used in the production of acrylic ester in alcoholysis; moreover, Acrylonitrile can be hydrolyzed and used in the production of acrylamide or adiponitrile in electrolytic method, etc. At present, Acrylonitrile is getting more and more popular in the industry of organic synthesis, and become an important fine chemical intermediate.

Package Of Acrylonitrile:

19Ton/ISO Tank
Storage:The use of acrylonitrile should be carried out in a fume hood to prevent inhalation exposure and should always be worn with splash-proof goggles and impervious gloves to prevent eye and skin contact. Acrylonitrile can only be used in areas where there is no source of ignition. The acrylonitrile container should be stored in a secondary container in an area separate from the oxidant and base in the dark.
