[Anti-white water name explanation]

Anti-white water acts as a solvent, especially a thinner, in spray paint, nitrocellulose, and varnish. Adding them in humid or rainy weather prevents whitening and fogging (moisture in the air adhering to the paint) after the top coat is applied. That is why they are called fibrinolytics in the United States. We call this phenomenon anti-white, so glycol butyl ether is small anti-white water, anti-white water.

[Difference between anti-white water and large anti-white water]

The scientific name of Daiphong White Water is Diethylene glycol butyl ether (CAS No. 112-34-5), abbreviated as DB, which is a colorless liquid with slightly butanol odor, miscible with water in any ratio, soluble in ethanol, ether, oil and many other organic solvents. Because of its high boiling point and low evaporation rate, it can be used as a solvent for coating ink, paint, dyestuff, resin, etc. It can dissolve grease, dyestuff, resin, nitrocellulose, etc. It is also used in organic synthesis. Also used as intermediate of plasticizer and diluent of hydraulic brake fluid, in addition to the production of piperonyl butoxide compounds. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

Big anti-white water is dibutyl ether (the reaction requires 2 mol of butanol with two ether groups) and anti-white water is monobutyl ether (the reaction requires 1 mol of butanol with one ether group). In addition, the criticality of large anti-white water is lower than that of anti-white water, and the former is not included in the catalog of eight types of dangerous chemicals, while the latter is included in the catalog of eight types of dangerous chemicals.
