1,3 Dioxolane CAS: 646-06-0
1,3-Dioxolane is a powerful aprotic solvent for use in formulations, in production processes, or even as a reactant. It can be used in paint formulations and as a carrier fluid in film coatings. Dioxolane is also an effective solvent for dissolving polar polymers, including polyesters, epoxies, urethanes, and polyacrylamide.
1,3-Dioxolane may be considered as a suitable replacement for NMP (N-Methyl-2-pyrrolidone) or THF (Tetrahydrofuran). Users would need to make this determination themselves.
