Coatings, Inks, Adhesives: TBAC solvent finds use in decorative and industrial coating formulations, packaging inks and pressure-sensitive adhesives. It is a useful tool in the formulation of VOC- and HAP-compliant coatings,inks and adhesives. TBAC solvent is less volatile and flammable than exempt acetone and methyl acetate.
TBAC solvent has a similar evaporation rate and solvency as MEK, MIBK, ethyl and propyl acetate ,and toluene in a variety of coating systems, including 2K urethanes, alkyds, acrylics, nitrocellulose lacquers and baking enamels. Because of its superior resistance to amines, TBAC solvent can also be used in epoxy polyamide coatings as a replacement for toluene. Cleaners: For solvent-based cleaning, including metal degreasing and specialized equipment
cleansing, TBAC solvent improves the cleaning efficiency of toluene, mineral spirits and acetone on baked-on greasy soil and lithium grease. TBAC solvent is non-halogenated and cannot deplete
Other Applications: The properties listed in the previous section also support the use of TBAC solvent in agricultural and textile products. It is a useful intermediate in the pharmaceutical industry.
