Product overview

TOKUSO IPA is a high-quality isopropyl alcohol produced through Tokuyama's proprietary direct hydration technique. Owing to its ability to be blended with both water and oil, TOKUSO IPA is widely used in paint and ink solvents and as a compound substance for medical and agricultural chemicals. It is also used in similar ways to antiseptics when administering injections because it has sterilization properties. For cleaning of electronic materials, Tokuyama offers TOKUSO IPA SE, a purer form of isopropyl alcohol.
