Product Detail

Absolute ethyl alcohol refers to a higher purity ethanol aqueous solution, which is a mixture of ethanol and water. Under normal circumstances, the concentration of 99.5% ethanol solution is called anhydrous ethanol. Ethanol is an important organic solvent, widely used in medicine, coatings, sanitary products, cosmetics, oils and other aspects, accounting for about 50% of the total consumption of ethanol.

1. Chemical laboratory: Anhydrous ethanol is widely used as a solvent in chemical laboratories. Due to its high solubility and low volatility, it can be used to dissolve and dilute many organic and inorganic substances, as well as for chemical reactions.

2. Pharmaceutical industry: ABS is an important drug and pharmaceutical raw material. It can be used to prepare solutions, extractums and extracts of drugs. Anhydrous ethanol can also be used as a solvent, detergent and sterilizer in pharmaceutical processes.

3. Cosmetics and personal care products: chemical absolute ethyl alcohol is used as a solvent and diluent in cosmetics and personal care products. It can help blend and stabilize the ingredients of cosmetics, such as lipstick, facial cleanser, antiperspirant, etc.

4. Hand sanitizers and disinfectants: Anhydrous ethanol is usually used in the manufacture of hand sanitizers and disinfectants due to its good disinfection properties. In healthcare, food processing, laboratories and homes, anhydrous ethanol is used to kill germs and reduce the spread of bacteria.

5. Printing and dye industry: anhydrous ethanol can be used as a solvent for dyes and pigments. It helps dissolve dyes and pigments, making it easier to apply to materials such as paper, fabrics, and plastics.

6. Electronics industry: anhydrous ethanol can be used to clean the surface of electronic components and electronic equipment. Its high volatility and low residue properties make it ideal for cleaning precision electronic equipment.
