Useful in formulating low volatile organic compounds (VOC) and coatings that are free of hazardous air pollutants(HAP). The low surface tension of diisobutyl ketone provides excellent wetting, and it exhibits much-needed “bite” for many plastic substrates to promote good coating adhesion.Useful as a retarder solvent for coatings. Used in nitrocellulose lacquer emulsions forleather because of its low water solubility, slow evaporation rate, low surface tension, and good solvency for the resin. It is also used as a viscosity modifier for some PVC organosols
