Your Pocket Guide to MEK
In this guide you will:
• Discover why MEK offers great stability
• How Methyl Ethyl Ketone benefits formulations of lower-VOC, higher solid paints and coatings
• Its benefits in water-based formulations
• Facts and figures about MEK
Methyl Ethyl Ketone (MEK or 2-butanone) is a colourless, low viscosity solvent with a mild odour. It is completely miscible with many organic liquids and to a much lesser, limited degree with water. With natural and synthetic resins the main advantages in using MEK are resultant low viscosity and the ability to produce high solid content products.
The properties of Methyl Ethyl Ketone such as high solvency and good stability make MEK the solvent of choice for coatings, adhesives, printing inks and cleaning. Regulations on VOC content create new requirements that give this solvent additional advantage in many systems by switching to Methyl Ethyl Ketone.
Both the lower density and the higher solvent strength of Methyl Ethyl Ketone assist formulators in producing economical, high quality, high solids formulations. These higher solvent strength characteristics produce lower viscosities of solvent solutions compared to Esters.
