HEP N-Hydroxyethyl-2-Pyrrolidone, Hydrophilic Co-Solvent for the Formulators Toolbox. Organised by BASF / BTC Europe (Free Webinar) 8th October, 2020 – 09:30
HEP uniquely combines a high boiling-point and water-solubility allowing for diverse use as a co-solvent or extraction solvent typically in inks, coatings, cleaning, agrochemicals / pharma applications. Its hydrophilic nature and strong polar solubility also suggest its use as a humectant. Current users of 2P, GBL and NMP will be interested to learn that HEP is label-free and can offer a low-tox or more sustainable alternative to standard pyrrolidones.
If you would like to find out a little bit more about the chemistry, characteristics and applications for HEP then please join us for the following session
