Isopropyl Acetate (IPAC)
Isopropyl Acetate is an organic chemical compound, an ester of acetic acid and isopropanol. It is obtained by reacting acetic acid with isopropyl alcohol in the presence of sulfuric acid as a catalyst. Isopropyl Acetate dissolves a wide range of substances and is therefore a useful solvent for many industrial processes.
Isopropyl Acetate is in the form of a colorless liquid with a characteristic fruity odor. It is soluble in organic solvents, but only slightly soluble in water. Isopropyl Acetate is characterized by low surface tension, low flash point and a fast evaporation rate.
The shelf life of Isopropyl Acetate is 12 months.
Foodcom S.A. supplies its Business Partners with Isopropyl Acetate in bulk, drums and IBC containers.
Isopropyl Acetate serves as a solvent for nitrocellulose, acetylcellulose, and ethylcellulose and is therefore of great value in paint, lacquer and ink production. In the production of nitrocellulose lacquers, a mixture of acetic acid esters with different boiling points is used to ensure gradual evaporation of the solvents. This technique is employed to achieve a smooth and glossy surface of the varnish.
Isopropyl Acetate is also a solvent in automotive coatings and wood finishes. It helps dissolve resins, pigments, and binders, facilitating even application and drying.
In the production of cosmetics, Isopropyl acetate is a fragrance in perfumes, and is also used in the production of nail care products.
