Glycol Ether DPM

Glycol Ether DPM is a mid to slow evaporating solvent that has 100% water solubility and is ideally suited as a coupling agent in a wide range of solvent systems. This product has a higher flash point than Glycol Ether PM / Dowanol PM, making it easier to handle, store, and ship.

Benefits and Applications

Glycol Ether DPM provides good solvency for a wide variety of resins including acrylic, epoxies, alkyds, polyesters, nitrocellulose and polyurethanes. Glycol Ether DPM has a relatively low vapor pressure (volatility) and evaporates at a slow rate. Key properties for coating applications include complete water miscibility and good coupling ability.

Cleaners: Surface tension reduction and slow evaporation are some of the benefits of using Glycol Ether DPM in cleaning formulations. Glycol Ether DPM has a low odor and slow evaporation rate. It is a good choice for wax strippers and floor cleaners, which are spread over a large area. When used in an enclosed area, a floor cleaner containing a fast-evaporating solvent might produce an undesirable amount of solvent vapor. Glycol Ether DPM provides good solvency for polar and non-polar materials.

Other Applications: The properties listed in the previous section also support the use of Glycol Ether DPM in agricultural, cosmetic, electronic, ink, textile and adhesive products.
