C 10 AROMATIC SOLVENT

 

C10 aromatic solvent, also known as Aromatic 150, is a clear colourless liquid with a mildly aromatic odour. It’s a flammable liquid with a boiling point between 181-205° C. C10 aromatic solvent is a member of the petroleum hydrocarbon family and is predominantly made up of c9-c11 aromatic hydrocarbons. It is also frequently called Solvent Naphtha or Type II Heavy Aromatic Solvent. It is stored in mild steel drums and they should be stored in a cool, dry and properly ventilated area free from any risk of ignition.

How is it manufactured?

C10 aromatic solvent is produced from the distillation of aromatic streams, derived from crude oil. This aromatic compound is harmful to humans, therefore, the process, manufacturing apparatus, transfer and storage of these chemicals are continuous and enclosed. Vinati Organics produces C10 aromatic solvent of the highest quality and purity.

 

Industry Applications

C10 aromatic solvent is predominantly used in the paints and coatings industry, agrochemical sector and printing inks. C10 has a higher flash point and evaporation rate than that of Xylene, therefore, it imparts better flow and film formation which is extremely beneficial for paints and coatings. The agricultural industry actively looks for products that are environmentally friendly. As C10 aromatic solvent has no ethyl-benzene content, it is very useful in pesticide and other agricultural formulations.

This aromatic solvent is useful in process additive fluids like synthetic resins, oil-modified alkyds and chloro-rubber formulations. It is also useful in foundries and oilfields.
