Arkema diacetone alcohol or DAA is an oxygenated solvent derived from acetone which has two alcohol and ketone functions. It has a high purity. It is colourless and odourless and has a low evaporation rate. Diacetone alcohol is mainly used in paints and coatings (coil coatings, wood varnishes, architectural coatings…). It is a good solvent for organic peroxides.
It can also be used for the treatment of textiles and leather, in chemical synthesis or as a cleaning solvent.
