General description

This ElectroGreen® solvent is made of bio-based (corn/beets derived) safer alternatives to replace synthetic butyl cellosolve fossil-based solvent with specifications tailored for electronics and energy applications. All our ElectroGreen® solvents line are derived from a renewable resource(verified through C14 ASTM D6866-16 testing). We are committed to bringing you Greener Alternative Products, which adhere to one or more of The 12 Principles of Greener Chemistry. Click here for more information.

This solvent blend consists of Ethyl lactate 70-90%, hexan-1-ol 30-50%.

Application

Our bio-based replacement for Butyl Cellosolve is perfect for cleaning in electronics, as well as ink formulations.
It is a precision cleaning solvent, dries completely, no film residue. It is also easy and inexpensive to distill/recycle, whilst no environmentally hazardous ingredients and no Hazardous Air Pollutants.
It is 20% to 30% more efficient in viscosity reduction than Butyl Cellosolve. It is an excellent solvency for ink formulations with high loading capacity.
