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.
