EGDA offers an excellent combination of good environmental properties in association with its very low evaporation rate such as Low MIR, non-HAP, non-Sara and is biodegradable.

WHAT IS ETHYLENE GLYCOL DIACETATE?

EGDA is a colourless, low odour solvent with a very slow evaporation profile that finds major applications in foundry core-binding and in thermoplastic acrylic coatings. You can read the entire EGDA data sheet for more technical information.

Applications

EGDA imparts excellent flow properties in baking lacquers and enamels and where thermoplastic acrylic resins are used.

EGDA is also a good solvent for cellulosic coatings and can be used in some ink systems such as screen inks.

It has found use as a perfume fixative, and has reported applications in waterborne adhesives.
