Feb 03, 2019

THF(tetrahydrofuran) is primarily used as a precursor to polymers, Since it is polar with a wide liquid range, it is a versatile solvent. THF(tetrahydrofuran) is highly flammable. Considering its remarkable solvent properties, it can penetrate the skin and cause rapid dehydration. Although THF(tetrahydrofuran) is recognized as relatively non-toxic, it readily dissolves latex and is generally handled wearling nitrile or neoprene rubber gloves.

THF(tetrahydrofuran) is also used as an industrial solvent for polyvinyl chloride(PVC) and in the manufaturer of varnishes.  In the laboratory, it is a widely used solvent when its water miscibility is not an issue.

Additionally, THF(tetrahydrofuran)  is frequently used in polymer science, i.e., It can be used to dissolve polymers before determining their molecular mass using gel permeation chromatography. THF(tetrahydrofuran)  also dissolves PVC. Consequently, it is the main ingredient in PVC adhesives. It can liquefy old PVC cement and is frequently used industrially to degrease metal parts.

PVC Resin10-14%
Methyl Ethyl Ketone(MEK)40-55%

Industrial uses for THF(tetrahydrofuran)  include adhesives and sealant chemicals; intermediates; laboratory chemicals; processing aids specific to petroleum production, and solvents.
