Description

Applications
Ethyl acetate is most commonly used as a solvent (due to its dilution properties).  As a high purity solvent, it is used in cleaning electric circuit boards and as a nail polish remover.  At a lower purity, it can be used as in printing, pharmaceuticals, perfumes, food, decaffeination of tea/coffee and a carrier solvent for herbicides.  Ethyl acetate is also used in coating formulations for wood furniture, agricultural, construction equipment, mining equipment and marine uses.  It is also naturally produced in wine during the fermentation process.  The main user end markets of these product are the electronics, cosmetic, printing, food and coatings industries.
