Glycol Ether TPM

Glycol Ether TPM is a colorless, combustible liquid with low toxicity. It has very little odor and is completely soluble in water. It has excellent solvency for many polar and non-polar substances. Glycol Ether TPM is an ideal choice when high polymer solvency and extended system residence time are required. It can maintain rheological properties over time in ink applications. Its high boiling and flash points make it an excellent choice for use in oven cleaners, and as a tailing solvent in high-solids, solvent-based coatings. Glycol Ether TPM has a very low vapor pressure and may not be considered a VOC under some circumstances of use. Glycol Ether TPM is a good substitute for slow evaporating ethylene glycol ethers.

Benefits and Applications

Glycol Ether TPM has very low volatility and evaporates slowly. It is completely water miscible and has good solvency with numerous non-polar substances. It can be blended with faster evaporating solvents to moderate evaporation.

Cleaners: Surface tension reduction and slow evaporation are some of the benefits of using Glycol Ether TPM in your cleaning formulation.TPM 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 TPM provides good solvency for polar and non-polar materials.

Other Applications:
• Adhesive products
• Agricultural
• Electronic
• Ink
• Textile
