Butyl Glycol

Technical Datasheet | Supplied by BASF
High boiling, low volatility eth­y­lene gly­col mono-n-butyl ether/ 2-Butox­yetha­nol/ 1-Hydroxy-2-n-butoxyethane having mild odor. Butyl Glycol by BASF acts as a solvent and coalescent for paints and printing inks. It can form peroxides in the presence of atmospheric oxygen. Improves the flow and extends the drying time of coatings. Also improves brushability of alkyd resin paints and reduces their viscosity. It significantly lowers the minimum film forming tempera­ture (MFFT) and improves flow in many physically dry­ing paint systems. Improves the evaporation beha­vior of the vola­tile constituents. Exhibits miscibility with most common organic solvents and water. Butyl Glycol is used for aqueous coatings and printing inks.

Hansen Solubility Parameters

[16.2, 6.3, 12.3]
[δD - Dispersion force interactions, δP - Polar force interactions, δH - Hydrogen bond force interactions]

Please note, these HSP values are estimations. It is based upon the “like seeks like” principle. It splits an ingredients interactions into three parameters; δD (Dispersion force interactions), δP (Polar forces interactions) and δH (Hydrogen bond force interactions). Hansen Solubility Parameters can help you find a wide range of products that are predicted to be compatible with Butyl Glycol. A practical determination of these HSP values would provide higher certainty. Learn More.
