Paints & Coatings

Applications

1,3 butylene glycol is used for the production of unsaturated polyester resins. Resins for polyurethane, plasticisers' Alkyd resin paints and solvents of high boiling point.

Applications

3-Methoxybutanol is used as a solvent or co-solvent in coatings, inks and adhesives. For instance, it is used in nitrocellulose brush lacquers to improve brush ability and flow, and in alkyd paints to improve brush ability.

Applications

"3-Methoxy buyl acetate is used as an anti blushing agent in the paints & coatings. Due to rheology altering properties and low volatility, it can be used in enamels & epoxy containing systems. It also promotes flow & gloss of the paint film."

Applications

A solvent is a liquid substance that is able to dissolve another, the solute. Alcohols are used as solvents, specially with hydrophobic materials, which are those that water can not dissolve, such as oils.

Applications

Among organic solvents, ethyl acetate is regarded as being one of those with the least environmental impact. It is both highly effective and at the same time easily broken down in both air and water. It is also used in paints as an activator or hardener.

Applications

"Ethyl Lactate is an excellent ingredient for formulating printing inks, coatings, resin cleaners, paint strippers, graffiti removers, ink cleaners, etc. Ethyl lactate alone and is an ideal wipe solvent.

Applications

Also known as Dimethoxy methane, Formaldehyde dimethyl acetal has a chloroform like odour and is primarily used as a solvent in the manufacture of paint strippers and protective coatings

Applications

In paint cleaning applications Formaldehyde dimethyl acetal can be used to replace dichloromethane as a solvent. In addition, it has potential to replace Chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) as a blowing agent in polyurethane foams.

Applications

n-Hexanol is a high boiler & is used to improve the flow & surface properties of the paints. Derivatives of Hexanol are used as leveling agents to lower the surface tension of paints & coatings.
