Description
Ether alcohol used to dissolve nitrocellulose, polyvinyl alcohol, epoxy resins and many natural resins. Its use is limited due to possible health risks.
Chemical name: Ethylene glycol mono ethyl ether, ethoxy ethanol (also known as Cellosolve or oxitol)
Chemical formula:
Boiling point: 135°C; evaporation number relative to ether: 43, specific gravity: 0,930; refractive index: 1,4081; flash point: 42°C
Ether acetate also used to dissolve polyester and short oil alkyd resins, besides being used for the same applications as ethyl glycol. Its use is limited due to health concerns.
Chemical name: Ethylene glycol mono ethyl ether acetate; ethoxy ethyl acetate (also known as Cellosolve acetate).
