Subject: Tertiary Butyl Acetate 

We are investigating Tertiary-Butyl Acetate as a replacement for current
hand wipe & paint prep techniques such as MEK.  Apparently, the EPA is
looking into delisting it as a VOC, but I have not been able to find any
technical data concerning this solvent.  We're also exploring other possible
substitutions as this could be a replacement for VOCs in paints thereby
reducing our VOC emissions at the depots and field units. 

I have exhausted all the common solvent databases from the EPA and the DOD,
but have come up empty handed.  If anyone has any information concerning
this solvent, please reply.  Thanks!
