PAINTS + COATINGS | METHYLISOBUTYL KETONE (MIBK)
Methyl iso butyl ketone (also known as MIBK, methyl isobutyl ketone, and mono-iso butyl ketone) is a clear, colourless liquid with a characteristic ketone odour. It has the chemical formula C6H12 and is slightly soluble in water and is miscible with most organic solvents.
It is primarily used as a solvent in cellulose-based and resin-based coatings and adhesives. It is also an extraction solvent for antibiotics and other pharmaceuticals, and is employed in rare-metal extraction as a solvent for metal separation.
MIBK is also a chemical intermediate that is used to produce target molecules such as rubber antiozonants (used in the production of tyres) and acetylenic diol compounds.
