Tetrahydrofuran THF is known as universal solvent because it has strong solvency. It is good solvent to polyethylene, polypropylene and fluorine resin, and other organic compounds, especially polyvinyl chloride, polyvinylidene chloride etc. It is colorless and transparent volatile liquid, similar to the smell of ether. Soluble in water, ethanol, ethyl ether, acetone, benzene, most organic solvents. Combustible. In the air can generate explosive peroxide.

Color (APHA) 10max
Application of Tetrahydrofuran THF
· Resin solvent (Layered coating for tape, PVC surface coating, cleansing PVC reactor, ink for plastic printing, thermoplastic polyuretha-ne coating)
· Reactive solvent (hydrogen aluminum, and boron, steroid compound and macromolecule organic polymer, etc)
· Chemical medial agent (Polymerized substances of PTMEG etc. )
· Chromatographic solvent (Using the method of gelatins filtering chrom-atogram)
THF shall be kept well closed in a cool, dry and ventilated place. Avoid flame, heat and static. Keep away from oxidant and strong acid. Flammable labeling is required.
