ESTERS | N-PROPYL ACETATE
Normal propyl acetate (also known as n-propyl acetate or 1-propyl acetate) is an organic compound with a molecular formula of C5H10O2. This product is a clear, colourless liquid that has a distinguishable acetate odour. This product is highly flammable with a flash point of 14° C and a flammability rating of 3. It is highly miscible with all common organic solvents (alcohols, ketones, glycols, esters) but has only slight miscibility in water.
The major use of normal propyl acetate is as a solvent in the coatings and printing industries. Normal propyl acetate dissolves a host of resins which make it a suitable solvent for wood lacquers and industrial finishes. Within the printing industry it is mainly used in flexographic and special screening prints. It is also used in aerosol sprays, nail care and as a fragrance solvent. It can also be used as a flavouring additive due to its odour similar to pears. The main user end markets are the printing, coatings, lacquers, cosmetic and flavouring industries.
