Meanwhile, solvent-based solutions should be free from solvents that attack the ozone layer, and should instead be composed of water-soluble solvents, which exclude those most toxic for the user and most polluting for water, such as carbitol and cellosolve.
WH-HP resin containing 45% solid was prepared by slowly adding butyl cellosolve as a co-solvent and sufficient amount of preheated (70[degrees]C) deionized water into 100% solid WH-HP resin at about 90[degrees]C for 15-20 min under stirring.
Common VOCs like texanol, butyl cellosolve, butyl carbitol, ethylene and propylene glycol are commonly used to help with film formation and drying, but also have the potential to create holes in the ozone layer and can cause headaches and other complaints for occupants, Zimmer notes.
