Ethyl Acetate (EA) is a moderately polar solvent that has the advantages of being volatile, relatively non-toxic, and non-hygroscopic.It is a neutral colorless liquid with a faint and pleasant fruity odor. It is miscible in all proportions with the common organic solvents. It is an excellent solvent for nitrocellulose, cellulose ethers, celluloid, chlorinated rubber, some natural resins and numerous synthetic resins e.g. polyvinyl acetates, polyacrylates, polystyrene (coatings) and alkyd resins as well as plasticizers, fats, waxes and oils. Due to its low toxicity and agreeable odor, EA has applications as a solvent in inks for flexographic and rotogravure printing, where its main function is to dissolve the resin, control the viscosity and modify the drying rate.
