Eastman™ EP Solvent (Ethylene Glycol Monopropyl Ether) is a colorless, water-miscible solvent providing a slow evaporation rate, good viscosity control in waterborne resins, and high flash point. Eastman™ EP Solvent has a milder, less detectable odor than most other glycol ethers, enhancing its use in coatings when mild odor is desirable. Eastman™ EP Solvent is completely water miscible over a wide range of temperatures. Eastman™ provides this solvent stabilized with BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene). *Modeled using The Estimation Interface (EPI) Suite™ (EPA) (http://epa.gov/oppt/exposure/pubs/episuite.htm) The chemical substances for this product are listed as Inert Ingredients Permitted for Use in Nonfood Use Pesticide Products under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).
