Demand for ethoxypropanol is expected to rise due to growing demand from various applications including solvent and manufacturing of n-propyl acetate
. Ethoxypropanol and its derivatives are also widely used in the cosmetic industry as a solvent due to its ability to replace other solvents.
This particularly applies to Propyls from Oxea, a blend of n-propanol and n-propyl acetate
. They are touted as a game changer for the rotogravure and flexographic printing industry because with our Propyls, print shops can achieve higher print quality and produce more economically at the same time."
Showa Denko Completes Expansion of N-Propyl Acetate
TOKYO, May 8, 2018 - (JCN Newswire) - Showa Denko (SDK; TSE:4004) has completed expansion of its capacity to produce n-propyl acetate
(NPAC), which is used in solvents for ink for special gravure printing.

, primary amyl aceteate, UCAR[TM] Filmer IBT, UCAR n-butyl propionate, UCAR n-pentyl propionate, UCAR n-propyl propionate, UCAR Ester EEP
Products: Acetic esters, including: n-butyl acetate, isobutyl acetate, isopropyl acetate and n-propyl acetate
A simple and sensitive method for the simultaneous determination of methanol, ethanol, iso propyl alcohol(IPA), methyl ethyl ketone (MEK), methyl isobutyl ketone (MIBK), n-propyl alcohol (n-PA), ethyl acetate (EA), n-butanol, n-propyl acetate
(n-PAc), toluene and ortho-xylene by headspace techniques with FID detection is described.
n-Propanol is a widely used solvent and is also employed for manufacturing various chemicals such as n-propylamines, n-propyl esters, n-propyl acetate
, and glycol ethers.
We completed production facilities for n-propyl acetate
, and began full-scale production in February.
In October, SDK decided to build a plant for n-propyl acetate
that will be used in solvents for ink for special gravure printing.
