This product is widely used as a solvent and as a raw material in many chemical processing industries. It is relatively safe and can be used to dissolve many organic compounds which are insoluble in water. It is used in the manufacture of various substances including paints and plastics.

(iii) Potable (ENA) alcohol 96.0% v/v alcohol strength
Potable Alcohol is sold in bulk litres to Malawi Distilleries Limited and other local alcohol blending companies for the production of a wide range of spirits for beverage use. In the pharmaceutical industry, ENA is a prime carrier for a whole spectrum of medicines and is therefore used for processing a wide range of drugs. It is a good disinfectant as methylated spirit.
