Solvents and intermediates based on isophorone

VESTASOL® portolio contains isophorone (IP), trimethylcyclohexanone (TMC-on), tetrahydronaphthalene (THN) and decahydronaphthalene (DHN) used for chemical syntheses.

Our products are used in a wide variety of solvents and intermediate applications. Overcoming special coating and ink challenges often requires a careful selection of solvents. Whether in the paints and coatings industry, in manufacturing, in cleaning and degreasing surfaces, or in the formulation of crop protection agents, the properties and use of solvent influences on the performance of the end product.

Specialty solvents & intermediates

The universal solvency of VESTASOL® IP provides a remarkable gloss, excellent levelling and high compatibility in coatings and inks.

Applications

  • Inks
  • Crop protection
  • Chemical syntheses

Benefits

  • High boiling
  • Improves levelling
  • Increases gloss
  • Universal solvency

VESTASOL® THN is an aromatic-cycloaliphatic hydrocarbon. The naphthalene-like smelling, colorless liquid is insoluble in water and miscible with all common solvents.

Applications

  • Coatings
  • Greases, oils, waxes, bitumen
  • Floor waxes, shoe polishes
  • Heat transfer liquid
  • Chemical syntheses in pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries

Benefits

  • High boiling
  • Improves gloss
  • Improves levelling
  • Autoxidative

VESTASOL® DHN is a cyclo-aliphatic hydrocarbon with a characteristic odor. It is insoluble in water but miscible with organic solvents.

Applications

  • Coatings
  • Greases, resins
  • Floor waxes, shoe polishes
  • Plastics processing
  • Printing industry

Benefits

  • High boiling
  • Improves gloss
  • Improves levelling
  • Inert

VESTASOL® TMC-on is a high-boiling solvent which has only limited miscibility with water, but is infinitely miscible with the usual organic solvents in the varnish industry. It is closely related to Isophorone.

Applications

  • Intermediates
  • Raw material for chemical syntheses
  • Plastics (e.g., polycarbonate)

Benefits

  • High boiling
  • Universal solvency
