High flash point solvents are substances that ignite at significantly high temperatures. These chemicals can be utilized by manufacturers for various products and tasks. However, they also come with disadvantages. This blog will cover several advantages of utilizing solvents with high flash points and a few solvent options Ecolink has to offer.
Solvents, or dissolving agents, that do not ignite as easily have a few advantages compared to low flash point solvents that you should consider.
Firstly, they come with a reduced chance of burn injury. Utilizing less flammable compounds, reduces the risk of burn injuries.
A second advantage is that you will not have to spend as much money on protection. Protective equipment will still be necessary, but you will not be required to spend money on heavy-duty equipment.
Another advantage you should be aware of is that you will not have to be as worried about chemical storage.
While dissolving agents with high flash points do have fire-related storage considerations, it is generally much safer to store them near ignition sources and combustible chemicals than low flash point solvents.
Applications of Solvents
Solvents have many applications in the industrial and commercial world:
- Intermediates in chemical synthesis
