Ethylene Glycol Monobutyl Ether EGMBE
Ethylene Glycol Monobutyl Ether, the versatile solvent is a product obtains by reaction of ethylene oxide and n-Butanol. Ethylene Glycol Monobutyl Ether is chemically known as a Butyl Glycol, 1-n-Butoxy-2-hydroxyethane, n-butyl (2-hydroxyethyl) ether. Commercially it is known as a Butyl Cellosolve, which is a trademark of Union Carbide. ADVANCE PETROCHEMICALS LTD. is selling this product in brand name APISOLVE 118.
APISOLVE 118 is employed primarily in the production of lacquers based on nitrocellulose, cellulose ethers and chlorinated rubber. Small quantities are also used combination lacquers. Solutions of nitrocellulose in Butyl Glycol may be diluted with large quantity of white spirit, aromatic hydrocarbons or ethanol without adversely affecting the film properties. Small quantities of APISOLVE 118 improve both the flow and dilution capacity of the lacquers and also enhance the gloss of the resultant lacquer films.
Since APISOLVE 118 dries lacquer coatings very slowly, it is ideal for the preparation of brushing lacquers based on cellulose esters, cellulose ethers and chlorinated rubber. Even quite small additions of APISOLVE 118 to alkyd and the viscosity of the lacquer solution considerably, thereby improving the brush-out properties of such lacquers.
APISOLVE 118 is a good intermediate solvent for use in mineral oil emulsion. Even small quantities of APISOLVE 118 can disperse and stabilize such emulsion quite effectively. APISOLVE 118 does not attack rubber.
Packing : 50, 190 Kg. in M.S./HDPE Drum.
