AROMATIC Solvent Definition
An aromatic solvent is a solvent that contains an aromatic hydrocarbon such as naptha, toluene or xylene. Aromatic solvents are primarily used as solvents and diluents in various industrial fields. Aromatic solvents such as toluene are commonly used in paints, varnishes, adhesives and as chemical intermediates.
TYPES OF BITUMENS WE PROVIDE
BenzeneBenzene is classed as an aromatic hydrocarbon used mainly as an intermediate to make other chemicals such as ethylbenzene and cumene. and it is used to make styrene, polymers, plastics, resins, and nylon. Because it has a high octane number, it is a component of gasoline. Smaller amounts of benzene are used to make some types of rubbers, lubricants, dyes, and pesticides.
TolueneToluene or methyl benzene, is an aromatic hydrocarbon. The major use of Toluene is as a solvent in paints, glues, rubbers, lacquers, thinners, leather and nail polish remover, paper coating, silicone sealants, foam and manufacture of TNT. Toluene can be used as an octane booster in gasoline fuels used in internal combustion engines. and it also be used as precursor in the processes of manufacture of organic chemical synthesis such as Benzene, Xylene and Phenol.
XyleneXylene is an aromatic hydrocarbon and it’s areas of application include as a solvent in paints and resin, glues, rubber, leather industries and cleaning agents, silicone sealants and disinfectants. In dentistry, Xylene can be used to dissolve gutta percha, a material used for endodontics (root canal treatments). It is also used as a feedstock to terephthalic acid used in the production of poly ethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic bottles and polyester clothing.
