Ketone solvents characteristics: (1) methylethyl ketone (CH3COC2H5) methyl ethyl ketone isa fast evaporation rate of strong solvents.Mainly used in vinyl resins, epoxy resin andpolyurethane resin coating solvent system.
(2) methyl isobutyl ketone [CH3COCH2CH (CH3) 2]methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK) performance,similar to the usage of methyl ethyl ketone, butslightly slower evaporation rate. Due to methylethyl ketone methyl isobutyl ketone in China andhigher prices, less widely used, mainly composedof a variety of paint with other solventmixtures, adjust the mixing solvent and solventevaporation rate to improve coating performance.
(3) cyclohexanone (C5H10CO) cyclohexanone is astrong solvent, but it a slower evaporationrate. Mainly used for polyurethane coatings,epoxy coatings, such as paint and vinyl resins.Cyclohexanone is a colorless oily liquid, thesmell of acetone. Slightly soluble in water,soluble in alcohol and ether, air andcyclohexanone vapors may form explosivemixtures.
