Uses of Diacetone Alcohol (DAA)
DAA is used as a raw material for high boiling point solvents, paint diluents, wood stains, rust removers, and dyes, etc.
DAA is used as a dye raw material and resin solution.
It can be used as a solvent for cellulose acetate and cellulose ester, and celluloid. It can be applied in biochemical researches, electrophoretic analysis and wood preservatives.
DAA has the chemical properties of ketones and tertiary alcohols. It will be decomposed when mixed with alkalis or heated to more than 130 ℃, which produces 2 molecules of acetone.
It can be used as a high boiling point organic solvent. It has low viscosity, on which low temperatures have little effect, and is used in cellulose ester paints.
DAA can be used for printing inks and as a solvent and paint stripper for synthetic resin coatings. It can also be used in insecticides, fungicides, wood preservatives, solvents for colorants, and extracting agents for oils and aromatics. It is used as a component in the manufacture of photographic films, rayon, artificial leather, antifreeze, brake oil.
DAA is non-corrosive to gold shavings and can be packaged in iron, mild steel and aluminum containers. It should be stored in a well-ventilated, dry warehouse, away from fire and heat sources.
