Triisobutyl Phosphate

Triisobutyl phosphate is a very strong solvent used for liquefying concrete, textile auxiliaries, paper coating compounds, etc.

Tri iso butyl phosphate (TiBP) is a very strong, polar solvent. It is mainly used as an antifoaming agent in various aqueous systems where it has the ability to both destroy foam and act as a foam inhibitor. TiBP is also used in the  roduction of solutions of synthetic resins and natural rubber. In both  ellulose-based plastics and synthetic resins, it is used as a flame-retarding plasticizer. TiBP is employed as a pasting agent for pigment pastes. Due to the limited influence of temperature on the viscosity of TiBP, it also serves as an important component in the manufacture of hydraulic fluids for aircraft. As a very strong wetting agent, TiBP is used in the textile industry and in the field of adhesives.
