Butylated acetate is neutral, colorless and has a specific odor. Excellent solvent butyl acetate for nitrocellulose, cellulose ethers, cellulose, chlorinated tires, polyvinyl acetate, polyvinyl chloride, hose flex, polystyrene, polyacrylates, most of the neutral resin, lubricants and oils. Butyl acetate is one of the most important volatile solvents due to its high solvent power and high dilution capacity. (Especially when mixed with alcohol).
The suitable evaporation rate and darkness resistance in the drying lacquer can allow the flow and moisture resistance of the varnish to match with all the conditions associated with drying, by choosing a suitable ratio of butyl acetate.
Butyl acetate is commonly mixed with butanol. Butyl acetate also consumes a lot in compound lacquers and can be used to disperse the isocyanate component in polyurethane varnishes.
Butyl acetate can be used to produce essential oils, perfumes, spots and colored paper because it has a pleasant smell, good volatility, and good solubility.
Isobutyl acetate is desirable, neutral, colorless and with a fruity smell. Isobutyl acetate can be used with advantages in nitrocellulose varnishes instead of normal butyl acetate because it gives the viscosity lacquer lower and dilutes. Isobutyl acetate can also be used to replace normal butyl acetate in other types of varnishes. The low water content makes it possible to use it as a solvent in reactive varnish.
Isobutyl acetate is particularly suitable as a solvent for nitrocellulose varnishes. It is also a good solvent for lacquer resins and other varnish raw materials. Its properties are similar to normal butyl acetate and are close to the properties of amyl acetate. The evaporation rate of 9 isobutyl acetate is slightly lower than the butylated acetate evaporation rate since the isobutyl acetate varnish is dried slightly faster than the butyl acetate-containing varnish. The layer darkness does not occur with isobutyl acetate. The capacity of dissolving isobutyl acetate is very good with diluents such as aliphatic hydrocarbon, ethanol, toluene
