Description

Methyl Isobutyl Ketone (MIBK) is a quality ensured, well tested and highly optimum series of chemical composition which comes clubbed with the best of performance life and a very impeccable fast serving effect. Methyl Isobutyl Ketone (MIBK) is a medium-evaporating solvent. It is an active solvent for many synthetic resins including cellulosics, vinyl copolymers, acrylics, alkyds, polyesters, and epoxies. It is very useful in developing high-solids coatings because of its combination of high solvent activity and low density.

Assisted by a team of skilled professionals, we are engaged in trading, wholesaling and supplying the best quality Methyl Isobutyl Ketone (MIBK)  is manufactured from acetone via a three-step process. Firstly acetone undergoes an aldol condensation to give diacetone alcohol, which readily dehydrates to give mesityl oxide. This ketone is well checked by our quality experts in order to make certain its purity. Our ketone is processed by using the excellent quality of chemical compounds keeping in mind the set standard of market at our vendor’s end.

 

Applications :

It is used as a solvent for nitrocellulose, lacquers, and certain polymers and resins. As an extraction solvent for precious metals. As a solvent for textile, industrial and other maintenance coatings. As a precursor to 6PPD, an antiozonant used in tires.
