A clear, colourless, medium cut, aromatic solvent liquid with a moderate evaporation rate. It has a similar volatility to Petropine (Mineral Turpentine). Peg Solvent 100 comprises mainly C9 hydrocarbons, and is predominantly aromatic in content, which ensures excellent solvency properties. It has a relatively narrow boiling range for a petroleum solvent.
Peg Solvent 100 Common Uses
- Paint and Resin Manufacture: Peg Solvent 100 is used in the manufacture of surface coatings where moderate volatility and high solvent power is required. The moderate evaporation rate of Peg Solvent 100 makes it ideal in coatings which require a slower drying aromatic tail. It can be used as both the solvent and diluent in stoving enamels, paints, lacquers and varnishes. Peg Solvent 100 is used in products with a high solid content, particularly where a good film thickness is required from a minimum number of coats. It is mostly used in coatings and stoving enamels designed for the automotive and metal industry, where a durable high gloss finish is desirable.
- Cleaning Solvent: Peg Solvent R100 is used as an economical source of aromatics in cleaning formulations.
- Insecticides and Herbicides: Used as a base solvent in herbicide and insecticide formulations.
