They are used for the production of paints, coatings, inks, sealants, adhesives, for pharmaceutical applications, textile industry, cleaning and as solvent extraction.
Ethyl acetate is used primarily as a solvent and diluent, ; coffeebeans and tea leaves are decaffeinated with this solvent; entomological killing agent; etc.
Butyl acetate is often used as a high-boiling solvent of moderate polarity; it is used as solvent, especially for cellulose esters and for the production of nitrolates.
Isobutyl acetate, is a common solvent. It is produced from the esterification of isobutanol with acetic acid.
Isobutyl acetate has three isomers: n-butyl acetate, tert-butyl acetate, and sec-butyl acetate, which are also common.
It is used as a solvent for lacquer and nitrocellulose. Like many esters it has a fruity or floral smell at low concentrations and occurs naturally in raspberries, pears and other plants. At higher concentrations the odor can be unpleasant and may cause symptoms of central nervous system depression such as nausea, dizziness and headache solvents.
Butyl glycol acetate is used in a variety of industries as a solvent for nitrocellulose and multicolored lacquers, varnishes, enamels, and epoxy resin. It is useful as a solvent because of its high boiling point. It is also used in the manufacture of polyvinyl acetate latex. It is an ingredient in ink removers and spot removers.
The main application for BDGA is in industries: Chemical Manufacturing, Cleaning Products, Paints & Coatings
