Physicochemical Properties

Ethylene glycol monobutyl ether is a colorless liquid with a mild, rancid, ether-like odor. It is miscible in alI proportions with many ketones, ethers, alcohols, aromatic paraffin and halogenated hydrocarbons. More specifically, it mixes in all proportions with acetone, benzene, carbon tetrachloride, ethyl ether, n-heptane and water. Because of its excellent solvency, low evaporation rate and high dilution ratios, it is used as a solvent in the manufacture and formulation of lacquers, enamels, inks and varnishes, employing such resins as alkyd, phenolic, nitrocellulose, maleic modified, styrene and epoxy. In lacquers butyl "Cellosolve" imparts a slow evaporation rate, strengthens blush resistance, heightens gloss, improves flow-out and helps prevent orange peel. Hot spray lacquers usually contain about 10% of "Dowanol" EB based on the solvent-diluent weight.

Applications and Usages

Ethylene glycol n-butyl ether (EB) is used widely as a coupling solvent because of its superior coupling efficiency and excellent solvency for resins.

Ethylene glycol monobutyl ether (EGBE) is used as a solvent for nitrocellulose, resins, oil, and grease, and in dry cleaning.
