Product Description

Eastman™ Ethyl Acetate, Urethane Grade is a low-boiling, fast-evaporating solvent with a mild, pleasant odor. It is widely used in formulating printing inks, adhesives, and lacquers. It is a non-HAP solvent with excellent activity for most coating resins. Ethyl acetate is miscible with most organic solvents and can be used in cleaner blends fo the removal of oils, grease, and soils.

The chemical substances for this product are listed as Inert Ingredients Permitted for Use in Nonfood Use Pesticide Products, and in Food Use Pesticide Products with limitations, under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA). For details on specific permissions, click here.
