Product description

Eastman™ C-11 Ketone is a low-cost, slow-evaporating, low-density mixture of ketone solvents. It is useful as a retarder solvent for primers, coil coatings, maintenance coatings and high-solids enamels. In these coatings, C-11 Ketone improves gloss and leveling, reduces orange peel, minimizes solvent popping, and helps reduce the VOC content. In many coatings, it can be used alone or blended with other solvents to replace isophorone and dibasic esters. <p>Eastman™ C-11 Ketone has good solvency for a wide range of resins including nitrocellulose, alkyds, polyesters, acrylics, epoxies, and some vinyl chloride/vinyl acetate copolymers. Compared with other solvents in the same evaporation range, Eastman™ C-11 Ketone often offers an economic advantage. <p> <P>*Modeled using <A href="http://epa.gov/oppt/exposure/pubs/episuite.htm" target=_blank>The Estimation Programs Interface (EPI) Suite™ (EPA), BIOWIN v4.10 module</A> </P>
