Glycol Ether DB Acetate / Butyl Carbitol Acetate / Butyl Diglycol Acetate

Glycol Ether DB Acetate / Butyl Carbitol Acetate / Butyl Diglycol Acetate is a high boiling, slow evaporating ester solvent that provides a good balance of volatility, solvency and water solubility. This solvent provides excellent film formation and formulation stability for coatings, and its mild, nonresidual odor makes it ideal for use in interior latex products.

Chemical Name: Diethylene glycol n-butyl ether acetate
Chemical Family: Ethylene Glycol Ether
Other Names:
  • Diethylene glycol n-butyl ether acetate
  • Butyl Diglycol Acetate
  • Butyl Carbitol Acetate

Used in: Advantages:
  • Water-based architectural and industrial coatings
  • Specialty printing inks
  • Superior dispersion stability
  • A good balance of volatility, solvency and water solubility
  • Excellent film formation
  • Good coalescing efficiency
  • Slow evaporation rate

Benefits and Applications

Glycol Ether DB Acetate / Butyl Carbitol Acetate / Butyl Diglycol Acetate is a colorless liquid with a mild ester-like odor. It is miscible with most organic solvents and is partially soluble in water. Glycol Ether DB Acetate / Butyl Carbitol Acetate / Butyl Diglycol Acetate is an excellent solvent for many natural and synthetic resins. It finds use primarily as a solvent in printing inks and high-bake enamel coatings and as a coalescing agent in latex paints.
