Overview

We make ethyl acetate on a large scale. Due to its low toxicity, it is used as a solvent in inks and paints and also as an extraction solvent. Its main function is to dissolve the resin, control the viscosity and modify the drying rate. It can also be used as a gelling agent in the manufacture of powder, essences and perfumes. It is miscible in all proportions with common organic solvents.

Packing: M S Drums, HDPE Drums, ISO tank, Bulk Parcel.

Applications

"Food grade ethyl acetate is a colourless, fragrant, low-boiling solvent primarily used as an aroma enhancer and flavouring agent. For example, it is used in artificial fruit essence and gives artificial flavours such as pineapple, bananas and strawberry in confectionary, ice-creams, cakes etc. Coffee beans and tea leaves are decaffeinated with this solvent. In a process that can take up to 10 hours, coffee beans are rinsed with an ethyl acetate solution to remove the caffeine from them. "
