Application

This is the bio-based substitute for N-Methyl Pyrrolidone (NMP), a widely used solvent in electronics. It is low in acidity and water, has a moderate drying time, and leaves no film behind. It has a flash point of more than 60 degrees Celsius and high solvency for coating and ink compositions. High loading capacity and low vapor pressure. Distilling/recycling is simple and economical, with no environmentally toxic ingredients and no toxic Air Pollutants.
