Paint and Coating

Caustic soda

Caustic soda is one of the common names for sodium hydroxide (NaOH), which is also known as lye. Its common name derives from its chemical identity as a sodium hydrate and because it is caustic or corrosive. In pure form, caustic soda is a waxy, white solid. It readily absorbs water and forms aqueous solutions.

Caustic soda is well known for its properties for stripping paint. It allows to remove the layers of paint or varnish as quickly as possible and with the least fatigue. We can use it as a solvent-based paint stripper. Caustic soda is an excellent stripper for wood and metals.

Isopropyl alcohol

Isopropyl alcohol is a colorless, flammable chemical compound with a strong odor. As an isopropyl group linked to a hydroxyl group, it is the simplest example of a secondary alcohol, where the alcohol carbon atom is attached to two other carbon atoms. It is a structural isomer of 1-propanol and ethyl methyl ether.

This chemical has different names in different fields, which include the following:
Commercial: Alcohol
Therapy: Disinfectant
Medicinal: Bulk


Fischer Tropsch wax is a methylene polymer, is a hydrocarbon synthesis gas or natural gas synthesis of alkane polymers, mainly rely on coal chemical quality cheap raw materials for iron-based or cobalt-based synthesis, compared with the price of crude oil.

The product range includes high-melt waxes used as performance additives in many specialty applications and medium-melt waxes which are used in similar applications to paraffin waxes.

High-melt FT waxes have a unique combination of high melting point, low viscosity, and hardness, even at elevated temperatures, which ensure superior performance in applications such as hot melt adhesives (HMA), printing inks, and coatings, bitumen modification, polymer processing, and polishes and textiles. These products are often used in conjunction with lower melting microcrystalline and paraffin waxes.

Medium-melt FT waxes are typically used as alternatives to petroleum waxes and exhibit superior properties in a number of applications such as waterproofing of construction boards.

Methyl acetate

Methyl acetate (CH3COOCH3) is an ester with a pleasant odor similar to glue and a clear, colorless, flammable liquid. Soluble in most organic solvents but relatively soluble in water. It is a strong solvent that dissolves a wide range of resins.

Methyl acetate is a solvent that has a high evaporation rate, so it is used in the production of various quick-drying paints and wood coatings (varnishes), industrial applications, etc. The lack of volatile organic matter in methyl acetate has led to its increasing use in the production of paints and coatings.

Butyl Glycol

It is a neutral, colorless, and almost volatile chemical. Butyl glycol is available as a colorless liquid with an ether-like odor. Features of this product include the following:

  • Slightly absorbs moisture.
  • Mixable with water, alcohols, ethers, paraffin, and aromatic hydrocarbons at room temperature.


Butyl glycol usage is dominated by the paint industry which consumes approximately 75 % of all the BG produced. This is because it is a low volatility solvent and can therefore both extend the drying times of coatings and improve their flow.
