Product Description:

MIBK (Methylisobutylketone) is a stable, medium evaporating liquid and compatible with many organic materials, which makes it a good industrial solvent. MIBK can also be used in order to extract, separate and purify various products. It is used in the pharmaceutical, agrochemical industries, in fine chemistry… It is also commonly used as a solvent in paints, lacquers, varnishes and adhesives. An other major use for MIBK is as a chemical intermediate in the synthesis of a rubber anti-ozonant additive in tyres. MIBK is among the top ten most popular organic solvents used in industry. MIBK is a medium-evaporating solvent. It is an active solvent for many synthetic resins including cellulosics, vinyl copolymers, acrylics, alkyds, polyesters, and epoxies. It is very useful in developing high-solids coatings because of its combination of high solvent activity and low density.
