In recent years, paint and ink industry in China has made considerable development, domestic and international chemical industry, coatings, ink industry are keeping a close eye on the fat market in China. However, as domestic and foreign coatings companies showed a polarization of profits, global coating giant AkzoNobel, PPG, Dow, BASF and Nikko still achieved high growth despite a slight downturn in the domestic market. In addition to their advanced marketing concepts, what is more important is that these giants of the industry have seized the trend of the market. Customers are asking for more green and environmental protection products, paying more attention to quality trends and low pollution more in line with the trend of national policies. In short, it is to find and grasp the vane of the ever-changing customer needs. The low environmental impact of solvent products have been more customers of all ages.
Abroad, the automotive coatings industry, household appliances paint industry, screen printing inks and other industries are using a green ether 3-ethoxypropionate, referred to as EEP. This solvent is lower than similar solvents Surface tension, high resistivity, low volatility in the car's original paint, repair paint has been widely used, at the same time, similar to the automotive paint for household appliances, has also been used. In high-grade ink, but also can do slow-drying solvent; in the electronics industry, but also to resist, thinner.
Both Dow Chemical and Eastman Chemical Company are the leading companies in the production of ethyl 3-ethoxypropionate. Dow's current annual production capacity of 20,000 tons.
Zhejiang Liansheng Chemical Industry Co., Ltd. obtained the patent of invention of State Intellectual Property Office (ZL200810061996.1) in June 2012 and has established a complete production technology and conditions. Its annual output has reached 6,000 tons.
Under the fact that China has become the largest producer and consumer of paint in the world, EEP, a solvent that is environmentally friendly and high-tech, has been recognized and used universally by foreign users, will surely have great prospects and will prevail.
