Featured Products



Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA)

Isopropyl Alcohol (IPA) is a clear, colorless, volatile material with a mild odor and a relatively low toxicity compared to alternate solvents. These characteristics allow its use for a variety of applications. IPA is miscible in water, alcohol, and most organic solvents. It will dissolve substances such as cellulose; natural resins; oils and gums; alkaloids.

Ethylene Glycol

Ethylene glycol, also known as monoethylene glycol or MEG, is an odorless, colorless, hygroscopic liquid. Not only does it exhibit low volatility and low viscosity, but it is also fully miscible in water and many other organic liquids. Because of the reactivity of the hydroxyl group and the high degree of solubility, ethylene glycol provides a broad range of applications. Besides serving as an intermediate to chemical synthesis, it can produce resins, act as a solvent, and lower the freezing point of water, lending its efficacy as an anti-freeze.


Acetone, also known as 2-Propanone and Dimethyl Ketone, is the simplest ketone and a colorless, volatile, flammable organic liquid. It has a low boiling point and characteristic odor. Acetone has good solvent properties for many fats, ethers, resins and organic substances. It is an important intermediate for chemical synthesis and has numerous applications in coatings, adhesives, cleaning, personal care, and pharmaceuticals.
