Diacetone Alcohol ( DAA)
EINECS number 204-626-7
CAS number 123-42-2
Diacetone alcohol or DAA is an oxygenated solvent derived from acetone which has two alcohol and ketone functionalities. It is the solvent of choice for many inks and coatings, including coil coatings, wood varnishes, and architectural coatings. It is also used in the treatment of textiles and leather and is an excellent cleaning solvent. It is a good solvent for many organic peroxides.
CAS number 30025-38-8
Ethyl DIPROXITOL is a colourless, hygroscopic, high boiling liquid with a mild odour. It is miscible in any proportion with water and many organic solvents and has good solvent power for nitrocellulose and dyestuffs.
It is used as an intermediate and in formulations in industrial, professional or consumer applications, mainly in surface coatings and printing inks and paints, cleaners, agrochemical or de-icing/anti-icing formulations.
Pentanols – 99% (Isoamyl Alcohol)
Isoamyl Alcohol (at a minimum purity of 99%), is a mixture of isomers 3-methyl, 1-butanol and 2-methyl , 1-butanol, with a preponderance of the first (aproximately 85%). The raw material used by PETROM in the production of Isoamyl Alcohol is fusel oil, which in turn is a byproduct of the distilling of ethyl alcohol (ethanol).
Applications: The main applications of Isoamyl Alcohol are:
– the manufacturing of paints and varnishes, to produce isoamyl acetate;
– the manufacturing of plasticizers for the production of DIAP (DiisoAmyl phthalate);
– the manufacturing of perfumes, for the recovery of oils and essences;
– the synthesis of fragrances and aromas;
– the production of isoamyl salicylate, applied widely in soaps and cosmetic fragrances;
– the purification of phosphoric acid, acting as an extraction solvent.
– the production of Xanthates (mining industry)
EINECS number 201-126-0
CAS number 78-59-1
Isophorone or IP is an oxygenated solvent derived from acetone with one ketone group. It is an excellent solvent for a wide range of coatings and inks. It is also synthesis intermediate for the production of chloroxylenol (A key antimicrobial) and also synthetic Vitamin E. It is used as an extraction solvent and in frothers and grinding aids.
EINECS number 200-661-7
CAS number 67-63-0
Isopropyl Alcohol is used in a variety of applications including as a solvent for industrial processes and coating; as a component in cleaning, car care and deicing products; as a wetting agent for printing inks and as a feedstock in the manufacture of ester.
Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK)
EINECS number 201-159-0
CAS number 78-93-3
Methyl ethyl ketone (MEK or 2-butanone) is a colourless, low viscosity liquid with a mild odour similar to that of acetone. It is completely miscible with many organic liquids, but miscible with water to only a limited extent. With natural and synthetic resins, MEK produces solutions with low viscosity and high solids content.
MEK has exceptionally good solvency for many synthetic and natural resins that are used in the formulation of printing inks, lacquers, and other types of coatings.
Methyl Iso Butyl Ketone ( MIBK)
EINECS number 203-550-1
CAS number 108-10-1
Methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK) is the organic compound with the formula (CH3)2CHCH2C(O)CH3. This colourless liquid, a ketone, is used as a solvent for gums, resins, paints, varnishes, lacquers, and nitrocellulose.
Methyl Isobutylene Carbinol (MIBC)
EINECS number 203-551-7
CAS number 108-11-2
Methyl isobutyl carbinol (MIBC), a high boiling, colourless, stable liquid, is a solvent for ethyl cellulose and certain phenolics as well as many oils, dyes, gums, and natural resins. It is a latent solvent for nitrocellulose. Methyl isobutyl carbinol is miscible with organic solvents, but has only limited solubility in water.
