JEFFSOL® carbonates are used in numerous applications that need:
- Outstanding solvency
- High flash
- Low VOC
- Low evaporation
- Readily biodegradable
- Exhibit low toxicity.
JEFFSOL® EC (ethylene carbonate), JEFFSOL® PC (propylene carbonate) and JEFFSOL® GC (glycerine carbonate) are non VOC’s according to EU dir 1999/13/EC.
JEFFSOL® carbonates can be used as a reactive intermediate replacing ethylene and propylene oxides, and ethylene and propylene glycols in many reactions. Where substitution occurs, use of the carbonates may allow for a more selective reaction and minimizes side reactions and contaminants.
- “Safe” solvents
- Paint strippers/removers
- Chemical intermediates
- Urethane reactive diluents
- Foundry sand binders
- Epoxy resins reactive diluents
Also available are carbonate blends of JEFFSOL® EC and PC. Also UltraPure® grades with high purity for sensitive applications like batteries and microelectronics.
