N-propyl acetate, or simply propyl acetate, is the ester of acetic acid and n-propanol (1-propanol). It is characterized by its pleasant odor, which resembles the smell of pears.
In large quantities, n-propyl acetate is used as a solvent for the coatings and printing industries. In particular, it is an excellent organic solvent and solvent thinner for wood lacquers, industrial finishes, flexographic inks, and screen print inks. Due to its fruity aroma, n-propyl acetate is used in small quantities as a food flavoring or as aerosol or nail care fragrance. This liquid is available in 405lb drums.
