Appearance: colorless, flammable, with fruit flavor liquid

Sec-butyl acetate is a good and broadly used solvent as it could miscible with almost all resin and organic liquid. Due to its powerful solvency, high volatility and mild odor, sec-butyl acetate is widely used in manufacturing industry and in the processing of paint, coating and adhesive. It owns very low solubility in water and could be used as extraction solvents for refined chemicals, particularly for certain antibiotics. It also could be used as an ingredient of balmy matters. It is used as chemical intermediate for pharmaceutical, synthetic flavoring, dispersant, and other organic compounds.
