PAINTS + COATINGS | BUTYL GLYCOL

Butyl Glycol

Description
Butyl glycol (also known as BG, 2-butoxyethanol, glycol monobutyl ether and ethylene glycol monobutyl ether) is a clear, colourless, oily liquid with a characteristic, but mild, odour.  It is miscible with water and with common organic solvents and has the formula C6H14O2.  It has been produced commercially for over half a century where it is most commonly used in the paint industry.

Applications
Butyl glycol usage is dominated by the paint industry which consumes approximately 75 % of all the BG produced.  This is because it is a low volatility solvent and it can therefore both extend the drying times of coatings and improve their flow.
