PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK) is a colorless liquid


exhibiting a faint ketonic and camphor-like odor. It is
one of the most useful among the acetone derivative
solvents and has a medium evaporation rate.

Methyl isobutyl carbinol (MIBC) is a liquid derivative


of acetone with a pungent alcohol odor. It has
limited solubility in water, but is miscible with most
organic solvents.

MIBK is stable and does not polymerize. MIBK


is highly compatible with a variety of organic
reagents and is a good solvent for a wide range
of industrial materials.
APPLICATIONS
Methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK)
End uses for MIBK include coating solvents, raremetal extraction, process solvents for adhesives
and as a chemical intermediate. MIBK can also be
used in oil and gas applications.

APPLICATIONS
Methyl isobutyl carbinol (MIBC)
The main uses are as an ore floating agent and a
lubricant oil additive. Further end uses of MIBC
include use as a latent solvent in the production of
nitrocellulose lacquers and frothers, talc processing
and surfactants; with aromatic diluents as a solvent for
ethyl cellulose, urea-formaldehyde and alkyd resins;
and as a raw material in the manufacturing of methyl
amyl sebacate and methyl amyl phthalate, which are
used as plasticizers.
