Aromatic solvent C10 is a high boiling point (181-205 °C) aromatic hydrocarbon solvent used mainly in paints and coatings, printing inks, and the agrochemical industry. It has a flash point and evaporation rate higher than that of Xylene and therefore imparts better flow and film formation making it useful in the paint and coatings industry. It also has no ethyl-benzene content and is therefore desired for environmentally friendly agrochemical and pesticide formulations.
Aromatic solvent C10 is a resin blendstock for foundries and has down hole applications in oilfields. It is also ideal for use in process additive fluids such as chloro-rubber formulations, synthetic resins, and oil-modified alkyds.
