METHANOL is a clear, colourless, highly volatile liquid with a pungently sweet odour. It possesses a low boiling point, a high rate of evaporation, and polar solvent power.
METHANOL can be used as a fuel or fuel additive to increase the thermodynamic efficiency of internal combustion engines.
As a high-octane vehicle fuel, methanol offers excellent acceleration and power. It also improves vehicle efficiency.
Methanol is a clean-burning fuel that produces fewer smog-causing emissions such as sulphur oxides (SOx), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter thus can improve air quality and related human health issues.
METHANOL’s other main use is for denaturing ethanol, normally 1.5—2..0% is added, the resulting MSWP is then not too toxic to use as a solvent, and retains the solvency of the base ethanol.
METHANOL is a bactericide so can be used effectively against mildew and moulds.
METHANOL acquired the name wood alcohol because it was once produced chiefly by the destructive distillation of wood. Today, methanol is mainly produced industrially by hydrogenation of carbon monoxide, with excellent purity..
