CAS No.: 67-63-0
Isopropanol Acochol (IPA) is an important chemical product and raw material. It is mainly used as a dehydrating agent and cleaning agent in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic, plastic, perfume, coatingand electronic industries. It is used to determine reagents such as barium, calcium, magnesium, nickel, potassium, sodium, and barium. It can as well as be used in chromatographic analysis of reference materials.
In the circuit board manufacturing industry, IPA is used as a cleaning agent and used for PCB hole conduction. Many people find that it can not only clean the motherboard very well, but also often achieve the best results. In addition, it is also used in other electronic devices, including cleaning cartridges, floppy disk drives, magnetic tapes, and laser heads for CD or DVD player optical drives.
IPA can also be used as a solvent for flexo, lithography, and gravure printing. It can serve as a device cleaner and is often included in inks. It is also an important solvent for dilution and extraction in the laboratory. In addition, IPA is also used as a de-icing agent for gasoline additives and fuel pipelines.
In the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries, IPA is used in the manufacture of wipes, hand and body lotions, preservatives, and pharmaceutical rubefacients. It is also used in paints, diluents, paints, and cleaners. It is applied for polishing, as well as surface sterilization, and hospital disinfection, and used in food processing plants.
In many industrial and consumer products, IPA is used as a low-cost solvent and an extracting agent, and can be used in place of ethanol in many cases.
IPA is also used as a solvent for oils and colloids, as well as in the manufacture of fishmeal feed concentrates. Low-quality IPA is used in automotive fuels and the amount of IPA used as a raw material for acetone production is decreasing. Several compounds are synthesized using IPA, such as isopropyl, methyl isobutyl ketone, isopropylamine, diisopropyl ether, isopropyl acetate, thymol, and many esters. Different qualities of IPA can be supplied depending on its end use. The normal mass of anhydrous IPA is more than 99%, while the special-grade IPA content is more than 99.8% (for fragrances and drugs).
