General description

This ElectroGreen® solvent is made of bio-based (corn/beets-derived) safer alternatives to replace synthetic methyl amyl ketone 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 50-70%, iso-butanol 30-50%.


Our bio-based replacement for Methyl Amyl Ketone (MAK) is a precision electronics cleaning solvent, dries completely, with no film residue. It has a better cleaning power and reduced solvent usage vs. MAK, and it is easy and inexpensive to distill/recycle.
Additionally, it is an excellent solvency for ink formulations with 20% to 30% more efficient in viscosity reduction than MAK, and it allows high loading capacity on ink formulations.
