Other details:

Ethylene Glycol Monomethyl Ether, is a reaction product of ethylene oxide and Methanol. Ethylene Glycol Monomethyl Ether is chemically known as a Methyl Glycol, 2-Methoxy Ethanol,1-Methoxy-2-hydroxyethene, Methyl (2-hydroxyethyl) ether. Commercially it is known as a Methyl Cellosolve, which is a trademark of Union Carbide. Ethylene Glycol Mono Methyl Ether is an excellent solvent for the various resins & paste etc. ADVANCE PETROCHEMICALS LTD. is selling this product in the brand name APISOLVE 76.

Ethylene Glycol Monomethyl Ether has a high solvent power so it is used together with low- boiling solvents. Methyl Cellosolve (Methyl Glycol) is employed with particular advantage in cellulose acetate and cellulose ether lacquers. Although it has a rather high boiling point, film formation is rapid owing to its relatively high evaporation rate. Methyl Glycol is such a good solvent for nitrocellulose that it may be used in the production of very highly concentrated lacquer solution which dry and set within a comparatively short time. It can be used with advantage for regulating the evaporation time and the flow of cellulose ether lacquers, for this purpose it may be diluted to a large extent with toluene or ethanol. This product is also used in aviation industry as FSII  Dicing Anti Icing agent.

Ethylene Glycol Monomethyl Ether tends to absorb water readily and is therefore always mixed with Apitol, methoxybutanol or Butanol, in order to prevent blushing of the lacquer film on drying. Cellulose lacquers containing Methyl Cellosolve (2-Metoxy Ethanol) are applied to stained wood, the solvent dissolves part of the stain out of the wood, giving slightly colored lacquer films. Ethylene Glycol Monomethyl Ether (APISOLVE 76) may also be used in the dying of leather. Methyl Glycol does not attack rubber.
