EZ-Blox™

EZ-Blox MoleculeEZ-Blox™ anti-skinning agent from AdvanSix is a breakthrough product that offers a safe, cost-effective and proven alternative to MEKO.  Produced at our state-of-the-art Hopewell, Va., manufacturing facility, EZ-Blox™ is designed to optimize the performance of alkyd-based paint systems by preventing a surface skin from forming when the product comes into contact with atmospheric oxygen.  This, in turn, improves paint performance and reduces waste.

Companies using EZ-Blox™ call it a simple drop-in solution to the complex problem of MEKO recategorization in Europe.  EZ-Blox™ comfortably meets the strictest German OEL standards, with a risk profile of up to 100 times safer than MEKO.

In addition, EZ-Blox™ is:

  • Safe to use: Low worker exposure and low toxicology profile – confirmed by independent testing.
  • Cost-effective: Easy switchover with no costly reformulation, and a dosage flexibility similar to MEKO – resulting in lower operational costs.
  • Proven performance: Wide customer base approval with many paint producers successfully launching products utilizing EZ-Blox™ for various applications – underscoring its high quality and formulation compatibility.

No other MEKO alternative can match the performance profile of EZ-Blox™, which is commercially available now to meet your needs.
