Other details:

Diethylene Glycol Monobutyl Ether is a versatile solvent of reaction product between ethylene oxide and n-butanol. Diethylene Glycol Monobutyl Ether is chemically known as a Butyl Diglycol, Diethylene Glycol Mono-n-butyl ether, 2-hydroxy-2butoxy-diethyl ether. Commercially it is known as a Butyl Carbitol, which is a trademark of Union Carbide. ADVANCE PETROCHEMICALS LTD. is selling for this product in brand name APITOL 162.


Diethylene Glycol Monobutyl Ether is used primarily in the manufacturing of lacquers based on nitrocellulose, cellulose ethers and chlorinated rubber. Small quantity is also used in combination lacquers. Solutions of nitrocellulose in Butyl Glycol may be diluted with large quantity of white spirit, aromatic hydrocarbons or ethanol without adversely affecting the film properties. Small quantity of Butyl Diglycol improves both the flow and dilution capacity of the lacquers and also enhances the gloss of the resultant lacquer films.

Since Butyl Carbitol (Butyl Diglycol) dissolves only dried lacquer coatings very slowly, it is ideal for the preparation of brushing lacquers based on cellulose esters, cellulose ethers and chlorinated rubber. Even small addition of Butyl Diglycol to alkyd and the viscosity of the lacquer solution considerably reduce, thereby improving the brush-out properties of such lacquers.

APITOL 162 is a good intermediate solvent for use in mineral oil emulsion. Even small quantity of Diethylene Glycol Monobutyl Ether can disperse and stabilize such emulsion quite effectively.
Butyl Diglycol does not attack rubber.
