2-Ethylhexyl nitrate General information:

Isooctyl nitrate is an important diesel fuel additive to increase the cetane number (CN value) of diesel fuel can accelerate diesel ignition and improve engine performance. Fuel additives can change some of the properties of the fuel, so that it is conducive to improving combustion, in order to achieve the reduction of harmful emissions from the exhaust of internal combustion engines and energy-saving purposes, and do not have to increase the device or change the structure of the vehicle and internal combustion engine, you can increase the diesel alcohol in the low-speed, low-load fuel energy utilization, thereby improving combustion efficiency and reducing pollutant emissions. Therefore, it is widely used and has a very good prospect.

2-Ethylhexyl nitrate Application:

It is mainly used to increase the cetane number of diesel fuel and improve the combustion performance of diesel fuel.
