PAINTS + COATINGS | ETHOXY PROPANOL
Ethoxy Propanol (also known as propylene glycol ether; Arcosolv PE; ethyl proxitol; and propylene glycol monoethyl ether) is a clear liquid that has a characteristic ether-like odour. It has the formula C5H12O2 and it is miscible with water, is hygroscopic, and it also provides good solvency for a wide variety of substances, including resins, inks, and adhesives.
Ethoxy Propanol is miscible with both polar and non-polar substances and is an effective solvent for a wide variety of resins, which include epoxies, acrylic, alkyds, polyesters, nitrocellulose, and polyurethanes. It also provides low toxicity and this is another property which is valued by the users.
Ethoxy Propanol is employed mainly in the surface coating and printing industries as it can regulate the flow, levelling, and coalescence of both surface coatings (including water-based paints), and of flexographic printing inks. It is also utilised as a chemical intermediate in the production of agro-chemicals and in the production of de-icing/anti-icing formulations.
