Diacetone alcohol is a low evaporating solvent with high water solubility. It is widely used in industrial and professional applications in coatings, cleaning, oil and gas field drilling, lubricants, metal working fluids, polymer processing and water treatment. It is also used as chemical intermediate in organic synthesis. Diacetone alcohol is also used as solvent in consumer products such as adhesives, inks, paints, thinners, paint removers, household cleaners and agrochemicals.
Diacetone alcohol is used in cellulose ester lacquers, particularly of the brushing type, where it produces brilliant gloss and hard film and where its lack of odor is desirable. It is used in lacquer thinners, dopes, wood stains, wood preservatives and printing pastes; in coating compositions for paper and textiles; permanent markers; in making artificial silk and leather; in imitation gold leaf; in celluloid cements; as a preservative for animal tissue; in metal cleaning compounds; in the manufacture of photographic film; and in hydraulic brake fluids, where it is usually mixed with an equal volume of castor oil.
