One of the primary uses of isopropyl alcohol is as a solvent. It is commonly used to dissolve a wide range of non-polar compounds, including oils, greases, and resins. This property makes it valuable in industries such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and printing.

Fuel Additive
Isopropyl Alcohol is sometimes used as a fuel additive in gasoline to improve combustion efficiency and reduce emissions. However, its use for this purpose is relatively limited compared to other fuel additives.

IPA is used as an antifreeze in windshield washer fluids and de-icing solutions due to its ability to lower the freezing point of water. It helps prevent the formation of ice on car windshields and aircraft surfaces during cold weather.

Paints and Coatings
Isopropyl Alcohol serves as an important intermediate in the synthesis of various chemical compounds. These derivatives find applications in industries such as coatings, plastics, and pharmaceuticals.

Cleaner and Degreaser
Isopropyl Alcohol is an effective cleaner and degreaser for removing oils, dirt, and contaminants from surfaces. It is commonly used in electronics manufacturing for cleaning electronic components and circuit boards, as well as in precision cleaning applications in industries such as aerospace and automotive.

Personal Care Products
IPA is used in the formulation of personal care products such as lotions, aftershaves, and perfumes. It serves as a solvent for dissolving fragrances and other ingredients, as well as a disinfectant to ensure product safety.
