Tertiary Butyl Acetate

Tertiary Butyl Acetate

CAS# 540-88-5
Formula: C6H12O2
Synonyms: Acetic acid tert-butyl ester; t-Butyl acetate

TBAc is a flammable solvent with a strong camphor-like odor, a medium evaporation rate, medium polarity, low toxicity, and negligible environmental impact. The physical properties of TBAc solvent set it apart from other VOC-exempt solvents: broad solvency range, an intermediate evaporation rate, low density and a flash point well within accepted industry parameters. This combination of properties, in conjunction with its VOC-exempt and nonHAP status, are key to the versatility of TBAc solvent.
