ESTERS | BUTYL GLYCOL ACETATE

Description
Butyl Glycol Acetate (also known as 2-butoxyethyl acetate; ethylene glycol butyl ether acetate; and 2-butoxyethanol acetate) has the chemical formula C8H16O3, and is a clear, colourless to pale yellow liquid.  It has a mild and pleasant ester odour and is only sparingly soluble in water but is miscible with many common organic solvents, for example, alcohols, ketones, aldehydes, ethers, glycols, and glycol ethers.  It is this solvent power, combined with its’ low volatility, that sees Butyl Glycol Acetate employed in many branches of industry.

Applications
The main use for it is in the coatings industry where it improves the gloss and flow of coatings that are baked at temperatures of 150-200 oC.  It also improves the brushability and flow of cellulose nitrate and cellulose ether lacquers, and of paints formulated from chlorinated binders.  Butyl Glycol Acetate is also a good solvent for urethane finishes and is a film coalescing aid for polyvinyl latex acetate.
