CARBITOL is a colourless, slightly hygroscopic, high
boiling liquid with a mild odour. It is completely
miscible with water and most organic solvents. In
addition, it has good solvent power for nitrocellulose
and can be diluted to a considerable extent with toluene.
It forms binary azeotropic mixtures with some organic

of its low setting point and low viscosity at low
temperatures DECAR CARBITOL is used in many brake
fluids. The solvent does not attack natural and synthetic
rubber. In combination with polypropylene glycol’s
or mixed adducts from ethylene oxide / propylene oxide
in particular it is possible to produce brake fluids
conforming to specification SAE J 1703a.
CARBITOL is used as a flow and gloss promoter in the
paint industry, the extendibility of the solutions
being increased. As low volatility solvents DECAR
CARBITOL should be added only in small quantities
to avoid undesirably long drying times of the paints.
DECAR CARBITOL can be used for pre-dissolving alcohol
soluble dyestuffs and is a constituent of many wood
stains. This solvent is also used in the production
of printing inks and as a cleaner in offset printing
shops, its property of not causing rubber to swell
being advantages DECAR CARBITOL phthalate is an excellent
plasticizer for vinyl resins.
the textiles industry DECAR CARBITOL is used as a
solvent for dyestuffs in the printing and dyeing of
fibres and fabrics. Addition of DECAR CARBITOL as
a solubilizer to lubricants often improves the storage
stability and consistency and facilities the forming
of the emulsion. The mutual compatibility of detergent
raw materials in aqueous solution can also be improved
by adding this solvent. This addition also prevents
gel formation by liquid detergent and cleaner formulations.
CARBITOL is also used as a solubilizer in drilling
and cutting coolants either containing or free of
CARBITOL permits the production of highly concentrated
solutions of chlorophenols (pentachlorophenol) and
chlorine based insecticides it is used for the production
of pesticides and wood preservatives. The low volatility
solvent is also a constituent of Indian ink and ball
point pen pastes.
a high boiling point DECAR CARBITOL offers the advantage
as accelerating saponification in the determination
of the saponification number of waxes resins and fats.
CARBITOL is used for specific applications, e.g. in
cosmetics as a solvent for essential oils in the perfumery
industry and in domestic cleaners.
