Butyl CARBITOL™ is a slow-evaporating, hydrophilic glycol ether with excellent coalescing and coupling power. Butyl CARBITOL™ glycol ether can be considered a slower-evaporating analog of Butyl CELLOSOLVE™ glycol ether. It can be used in combination with Butyl CELLOSOLVE™ glycol ether to lower the evaporation rate and increase the hydrophobicity of the solvent package. In addition, Butyl CARBITOL™ glycol ether offers 100% water solubility.
