Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK)
EINECS number 201-159-0
CAS number 78-93-3
Methyl ethyl ketone (MEK) is a clear, colorless, and flammable liquid with a slightly sweet odor. It is a common organic solvent with a wide range of industrial applications.
MEK is primarily used as a solvent in various industries, including the manufacturing of adhesives, coatings, and plastics. It is also used as a cleaning agent, particularly for removing oils and greases from metal surfaces. MEK is a highly effective solvent for many organic materials, including resins, waxes, and oils.
In addition to its solvent properties, MEK is also used as a chemical intermediate in the production of other chemicals, such as methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK) and peroxides. MEK can also be used as a fuel additive or a component in some special fuels.
MEK is a volatile organic compound (VOC) that can contribute to air pollution and potentially pose health risks to those exposed to it. Proper safety measures, including proper ventilation and protective equipment, should be taken when working with MEK to minimize exposure.
Methyl Iso Butyl Ketone ( MIBK)
EINECS number 203-550-1
CAS number 108-10-1
Methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK) is a colorless organic compound with a pleasant odor. It is a solvent that is widely used in various industrial applications due to its excellent solvency properties and moderate evaporation rate.
MIBK is commonly used as a solvent in coatings, paints, and printing inks. It is also used as a solvent in the manufacture of adhesives, varnishes, and rubber-based products. Additionally, MIBK is used as a chemical intermediate in the production of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, and other chemicals.
MIBK can also be used as a denaturant for alcohol, making it unsuitable for human consumption. In the laboratory, MIBK is used as a solvent in various chemical reactions, such as the extraction of alkaloids from plants and the synthesis of pharmaceutical intermediates.
It is important to handle MIBK with care, as it is a flammable liquid that can cause skin and eye irritation upon contact. Protective equipment and proper handling procedures should be used when working with this compound. MIBK also has a low flash point and should be stored and transported in accordance with appropriate safety regulations.
Methyl Isobutylene Carbinol (MIBC)
EINECS number 203-551-7
CAS number 108-11-2
Methyl isobutyl carbinol (MIBC) is a clear, colorless liquid with a mild, sweet odor. It is a type of alcohol that is primarily used as a frother in mineral flotation processes.
MIBC is commonly used in the mining industry as a frother to help separate valuable minerals from unwanted minerals. During the flotation process, MIBC is added to the mineral slurry to create a froth that rises to the top, allowing the desired minerals to be separated from the unwanted minerals. MIBC is particularly effective in frothing sulfide ores, such as copper, lead, and zinc.
MIBC is also used as a solvent in the production of perfumes, paints, and other chemical products. It is a relatively non-toxic and non-corrosive compound, making it a useful alternative to other solvents that may be more harmful or damaging.
However, like all chemicals, MIBC can pose health risks if not handled properly. It is important to follow proper safety procedures, including wearing appropriate protective equipment and ensuring proper ventilation, when working with MIBC or any other chemical.
EINECS number 203-539-1
CAS number 107-98-2
Methyl Proxytol is an organic solvent with a wide variety of industrial and commercial uses. Similar to other glycol ethers, it is used as a carrier/solvent in printing/writing inks and paints/coatings. It also finds use as an industrial and commercial paint stripper. It is used as an antifreeze in diesel engines.
Methyl Proxitol Acetate
EINECS number 203-603-9
CAS number 108-65-6
Methyl PROXITOL acetate is a colourless, neutral propylene oxide-based glycol ether acetate with a mild odour and a volatility, viscosity and solvent power similar to those of ethylene glycol-based glycol ether acetates.
