DAA (diacetone alcohol) is made from aldol condensation reaction of acetone. DAA is a good solvent used in painting, can coating, optical discs and IT related products manufacturing. DAA is also a common synthetic intermediate used for the preparation of other chemical compounds. In addition, DAA can serves as a solvent extractant in purification processes for resins and waxes.
MEK (methyl ethyl ketone) is an important organic solvent with excellent solubility and is widely used in synthetic leather, synthetic resin, acrylic and vinyl surface coatings, and many computers related products. MEK has many favorable properties, but is most noted for its fast evaporation rate, high solvency power, and viscosity, that make MEK to be a distinct leader in the solvent arena.
