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 has a high solvent power, so it can used together with low-
boiling solvent. 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
