Producer: 
Eastman
Eastman™ EEH Solvent (Ethylene Glycol 2-Ethylhexyl Ether) is primarily used in performance specialty coatings applications. It offers an excellent balance of performance properties when used as a coalescent in architectural and industrial maintenance coatings. Eastman™ EEH Solvent has low water miscibility, low surface tension, good hydrolytic stability, and high electrical resistance. In electrodeposition primers, Eastman™ EEH Solvent reduces volatilization from dip tanks and provides good flow and leveling of the coating in the baking oven. It is not a HAP or listed on SARA 313. *Modeled using The Estimation Programs Interface (EPI) Suite™ (EPA), BIOWIN v4.10 module
