Product Data and Technical Information

Corporate Statement

Propylene Glycol Ethers (PGEs) are high-performance industrial solvents for paints and coatings, cleaners, inks, and a variety of other applications. These P-series glycol ethers have become the solvents of choice for reformulations and new product development. Propylene glycol ethers are based on reacting propylene oxide with varying chain alcohols.

Benefits & Applications

Glycol Ether DPM provides good solvency for a wide variety of resins including acrylics, 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.

Surface tension reduction and slow evaporation are some of the benefits of using Glycol Ether DPM in cleaning formulations. 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.
