Dipropylene glycol butyl ether (DPnB) is a colorless and transparent liquid with slight ether odor and bitter taste, soluble in water, with good binding power, good solubility and binding properties to coating resins, and is an excellent film-forming additive. Dipropylene glycol butyl ether as a film-forming additive commonly used in water-based coatings, its role is great. DPNB can improve the viscosity of waterborne coating system, especially multi-solvent system, thickener has no effect at all, DPNB with neutralizer can greatly improve the viscosity of coating, good storage, open thin spraying will not hang, flowering. DPNB can also improve the defoaming of water-based coatings, whether in production or construction, it is helpful to defoaming. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

Coatings: It can be used as a coagulant for acrylic resin, styrene acrylic resin and polyvinyl acetate to give excellent properties to the paint film. It is one of the most effective film-forming additives for many water-based coatings.

Cleaning agents: Suitable for cleaning agents, especially for systems requiring very low volatility, such as wax removers and floor cleaners. It is a good coupling agent for grease and oil, and canbe used as a paint remover and animal fat remover.

Other applications: agricultural products, cosmetics, electronic inks, textiles.

ARCOSOLV ® DPNB has a mild odor, low water solubility and good binding power, and has good solubility to coating resins. It shows good binding properties to various resins. In addition it has excellent film forming properties.
