Eastman DE Solvent (Diethylene Glycol Monoethyl Ether) is a very polar, slow evaporating, water miscible solvent with a low odor. It is an active solvent for cellulose acetate butyrate, nitrocellulose, epoxy resins, and other coating materials. Eastman™ DE solvent is used as a coalescent in latex paints and floor polishes, and as penetrating solvent in wood stains. The established LVP-VOC exemption criteria, applicable in some states, can be reviewed in California’s Consumer Product Regulation. Visit the California Air Resource Board website for regulatory information. The chemical substances for this product are listed as Inert Ingredients Permitted for Use in Nonfood Use Pesticide Products, and in Food Use Pesticide Products with limitations, under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).
