Parachlorobenzotrifluoride is an organic chemical compound with the molecular formula C7H4ClF3. It is frequently abbreviated PCBTF.It is used as an ink solvent in the printing industry. PCBTF is used as a component (5-12%) of low VOC compliant polyurethane finishes.The material itself is considered to have negligible VOCs and is increasingly used as a Xylene replacement in cleaners, thinners and other aromatic hydrocarbon blends.Parachlorobenzotrifluoride has a high capacity for dissolving many inks used by the printing industry.
China is the main supplier of PCBTF in world market.While along with the deceleration in the Chinese economy,the demand of Hydrochloric Acid which is the main byproduct of PCBTF production became weak. This leads to difficulty for the suppliers to dispose of Hydrochloric Acid in time,then cause manufacturing issues.These months the supply became tight and the price of PCBTF slightly went up.
