Butyl CARBITOL™ Solvent

A slow-evaporating, hydrophilic glycol ether with excellent coalescing and coupling power that can be combined with Butyl CELLOSOLVE™ glycol ether to lower the evaporation rate and increase the hydrophobicity. It offers 100% water solubility. A solvent used for process cleaning purposes.

Uses:

  • Cosmetics
  • Cleaners
  • Textiles

Benefits:

  • Excellent solvency
  • Great chemical stability
  • Compatible with water and a number of organic solvents

Slow evaporation for powerful formulations

Butyl CARBITOL™ is a slow-evaporating, hydrophilic glycol ether with excellent coalescing and coupling power that offers strong solvency and chemical stability for a broad array of household products. Butyl CARBITOL™ glycol ether solvent has a vapor pressure that qualifies it as an exempt VOC (volatile organic compound) under the California Air Resources Board and U.S. EPA criteria for both consumer and commercial cleaning product applications. Other functional characteristics include, readily biodegradable and US EPA Inerts listed for non food use.

Powerful solvency properties

  • 100% water soluble
  • Good coalescing and coupling properties
  • High dilution ratio
  • Low viscosity
  • Good for removing soap scum and oily soils

Broad application compatibility

Butyl CARBITOL™ solvent is compatible for use in many applications, including:

  • Household and Industrial cleaning formulations
  • Latex coalescent in water-based architectural and industrial coatings
  • Coupling agent and solvent in household and industrial cleaners
  • Primary solvent in solvent-based silk screen printing inks
  • Coupling solvent for resins and dyes in water-based printing inks
  • Solvent for textile dyeing and printing
  • Coalescent for latex adhesives
  • Deactivator, stabilizer for agricultural pesticides

Butyl CARBITOL™ solvent can also be used in combination with Butyl CELLOSOLVE™ solvent solvent to lower the evaporation rate and increase the hydrophobicity of the solvent package.
