Application

The bio-based substitute for Butyl Cellosolve is ideal for cleaning electronics and ink formulations. It is a precise cleaning solution that dries with no film residue. It is extremely easy and inexpensive to distill/recycle, with no toxic chemicals or dangerous air pollutants.

It is 20 % to 30 % more effective than Butyl Cellosolve at reducing viscosity. It is a great solvency for high-loading capacity ink formulations.
