Uses of ethyl acetate: 


With alcohol - acetone - mixed with chloroform and ether. 

Ethyl acetate is used in formulations of printing compounds - glues - varnishes - cleaners - perfumes - fresheners - alcohol veneers and transparent candy and glass. 

It is a solvent for a variety of resins. Ethyl acetate is a cellulose nitrate used in the manufacture of products such as synthetic leather - veneer - composite - cement and photographic film. 

To extract camphor, oils - antibiotics - various resins and gums. 

In recovery, acetic acid is a useful diluent solution and is a suitable solvent for acrylate polymerization. 

In the compounds, the coating is extended to artificial leather.  

Ethyl acetate in some lacquers, in the extraction of caffeine from coffee and tea, in the food industry (sweets) as an essential oil, and in perfume as a solvent (Ethyl acetate is rapidly evaporated from the skin and the only perfume on the skin The skin also does not show an allergic reaction to it). 

As a gelling agent in gunpowder production. 

As a contributor to the production of paper and paper backing and as a polish component. 

Ethyl acetate is used in the building industry in a soil injection technique to stabilize soil as a linkage to alkaline water. 

Ethyl acetate The stiffness time of ethyl acetate regulates the glass water, which may result in a mixture of hardened glass gum injections in the ground that should be strong or keep water. 

This technique is very important in construction work to reinforce and fix the ditches of the gullies of the tunnels.
