Ethyl lactate


Basic Information

Ethyl lactate is colorless and clear and has a peculiar odor. It is mixed with water and many solvents. It is biodegradable and it also became popular as an organic solvent that has almost zero impact on working environments or on the environment due to leakage.

It has a high boiling point and low volatility and is often used in inks and polymer solvents. Also, it has been recently used as resistance diluents for semiconductor manufacturing processes. The demand for ethyl lactate as a detergent for the manufacturing process of LCD has been increasing.

Product Specifications

In addition to “Industrial grade”, we have “EL grade” , which we guarantee metals analyzed by ICP-MS.For further information, please contact us.
