What is Butyldiglycol?

Diethylene glycol butyl ether is a colorless liquid, soluble in water and oil. It is prepared by co-heating of ethylene oxide and ethylene glycol butyl ether under pressure. Because ethylene glycol monobutyl ether contains hydroxyl and ether bonds in its molecular structure, it is both hydrophilic and lipophilic, soluble in water, methanol, ethanol, ether, acetone, benzene, carbon tetrachloride, heptane and other organic solvents and mineral. It is used as a surface penetrant and bridge agent in cleaning agents, has low surface tension, and can act as a miscible bridge between greases and incompatible polar solvents such as water and isopropyl alcohol (eg, isopropyl alcohol) Alcohol and white oil, if you pour them directly together, you will find that they are incompatible with each other and have clear layers, but when BCS is added, the layers disappear and the two dissolve into a clear solution, which is both mutually soluble and can reduce surface tension. The water-soluble organic solvent with defoaming effect has a good effect in cleaning oil stains.
A good high-boiling point solvent; used as solvent and colorant; in metal surface treatment, used as metal cleaning agent to remove oil, paint and other contaminants; integrated circuit, electronic component cleaning agent; pesticide dispersant; organic synthesis intermediate; Mild, non-irritating household liquid detergent; fiber wetting agent; resin plasticizer, colorless liquid.

Butyldiglycol Industry Development Opportunities andChallenges

Glycol ether is prepared by the catalytic reaction of ethylene oxide by adding corresponding alcohols. Therefore, the glycol ether molecule contains the structure of ether and alcohol at the same time. It has good solubility of alcohol and ether, and is an excellent product. Solvents are widely used in coatings, inks, electronic cleaning and other industries. According to Zhuochuang statistics, in 2019, the designed production capacity of glycol ethers in China is about 240,000 tons, the industry output is about 117,250 tons, the actual downstream demand is about 298,300 tons, and the consumption of ethylene oxide is about 50,000 tons. Although the domestic output is far less than the downstream demand, the import supply supplements the gap. With the continuous development of the downstream water-based coatings and electronics industries, the glycol ether industry still has good development prospects, but at the same time, the domestic and imported competition is becoming more and more fierce, and it will face severe challenges in 2020. How will the development of China’s glycol ether industry be?
Development opportunities and challenges
Ethylene glycol butyl ether series products have the highest weight among glycol ethers. The designed production capacity of ethylene glycol butyl ether series products is 100,000 tons, accounting for 43.47% of the industry. The cumulative output is about 59,500 tons, accounting for 50.74% of the industry. , the actual downstream consumption is about 227,300 tons, accounting for 76.19% of the industry, so most of the analysis in the following analysis takes ethylene glycol butyl ether series products as an example.

Advantages and Opportunities for Production Process Maturity
Before 2000, most of the domestic manufacturers of glycol ethers still adopted the batch homogeneous alkali catalysis reaction process of kettle type. The catalysts used were mainly sodium alkoxide or potassium alkoxide. At present, the continuous tubular reactor is used to produce glycol ether in the industry. In the continuous tubular reaction, the three strands of reaction material EO, ethanol (or methanol), and the prepared catalyst solution enter the static mixer at the same time, and then enter into the static mixer after mixing. In the tubular reactor, the material enters the intermediate tank or directly enters the rectification tower for separation after the reaction, and collects different fractions as products. At present, the production technology of the domestic glycol ether industry has been highly mature, and the product quality is similar to the imported supply, and the downstream acceptance is good.
