Orthoxylene is a versatile solvent with a high solvent power, making it effective for dissolving various substances, including dyes, chemicals and other additives. Therefore, it is used in many industries, including the production of paints, varnishes, coatings, pharmaceuticals and perfumes. Orthoxylene can improve the properties of end products such as varnishes, paints and plastics, providing them with better abrasion resistance, dryness and durability.
It is also chemically stable, which means it can retain its properties for a long time in a wide range of operating conditions. Effective in processes requiring elevated temperatures due to high boiling point. It can be used as a fuel additive to increase the octane number of gasoline, which contributes to more efficient combustion of fuel and improves its quality.
