Applications of 2-ethylhexanoic acid (2-EHA) are as a drying agent, plastic stabilizer, emollifying agent, and wood prevention. 2-EHA is mixed with cadmium, strontium, or tin to manufacture plastic. It is especially renowned for its use in PVC (polyvinyl chloride). Adding 2-EHA salts to PVC raise its tolerance for resistance.
2-EHA esters also function as lubricants. 2-EHA is mixed with metals to produce metal salts. It is used as a drying agent in printing inks, varnishes, and paints. Manganese and cobalt are mostly used to make a solution of siccatives. 2-EHA sucks the oxygen from the air and the metal speeds up the process. Other elements used for the production of siccatives are copper, chromium, lead, potassium, molybdenum, zirconium, zinc, and lead.
2-EHA is used as an emollient in cosmetics in the form of an ester. This ester is made from the combination of cetearyl alcohol and 2-EHA. It is known for its hydrolytic nature and used in cosmetics. It is used as a skin moisturizer or in hair conditioners. 2-EHA is also a wood preservative, as it combines with fungicides to protect cut wood. Other applications include fragrances and corrosion inhibitors.
