Methyl acetate can be used in resins, paints, inks, paints, adhesives, organic solvents needed for the leather production process, polyurethane foam blowing agents, and banana oil.

The 99.95% high-purity methyl acetate is mainly used for the production of intermediates for pharmaceuticals and pesticides. It is also the main raw material for the production of food additives, coatings, and paints.

It’s used as a raw material for organic solvents, sprayed artificial leather, and spices.


  1. with most organic solvents
  2. with a wide range of solubility, dissolved acrylic, vinyl, nitrocellulose epoxy, polyurethane, polyester, phenolic resin
  3. the acetone has a higher flash point and higher control performance, can better meet coating, paint formulation, and process the user’s requirements
  4. the process of formulation requires the use of a low boiling point volatile Organic Solvent, the application can replace acetate and acetone, butanone
  5. the material can replace polyurethane cyclopentane as a Foaming Agent, such as HCFCs, environmental protection
  6. the use of environmentally friendly solvents, not harmful
