MISCELLANEOUS | BUTYLDIGLYCOL

Butyldiglycol

Description
Butyl di glycol (also known as BDG, butyl dioxitol, diethylene glycol monobutyl ether, 2(-2butoxyethoxy) ethanol and butoxydiethylene glycol) is a colourless, clear liquid with a faint characteristic odour, and the formula C8H18O3.  It is soluble in water and miscible with many common solvents, and also has low volatility and a high boiling point.  These are the factors that make butyl di glycol most useful in the paint industry.

Applications
Butyldiglycol is mostly used in the coatings and paint industries where its low volatility and high boiling point have seen it widely accepted as a flow promoter for baking finishes such as melamine, urea, phenol, or epoxy resin composites.  It is also widely used in stove enamels as it has a high evaporation number which means that the enamel properties can be improved without it affecting the drying time.  It also has a role in air-drying paints as it increases “brushability”.
