DOWANOL™ DPnB glycol ether is a slow-evaporating, hydrophobic glycol ether with excellent surface tension-lowering ability and coalescing properties. DOWANOL™ DPnB is a relatively slow-evaporating solvent which is one of our most efficient coalescents in water-borne latex systems. DOWANOL™ DPnB glycol ether combines a number of properties that contribute to very high latex film quality: 1) high polymer plasticizing efficiency, 2) large molecular size and therefore greater polymer mobility contribution, 3) strong partitioning to the polymer phase, and 4) relatively slow evaporation rate. This product is compatible with many different resin types. DOWANOL™ DPnB glycol ether also provides excellent surface tension lowering ability, and is useful in cleaning products by itself or when blended with other products such as DOWANOL™ DPM glycol ether. Used alone in cold metal cleaning, DOWANOL™ DPnB glycol ether is a good solvent for removing oils and greases.

DOWANOL(TM) PMA Glycol Ether Acetate

Chemical Name: 1-Methoxy-2-propyl acetate

CAS Number: 108-65-6

Labeling Claims: Phthalates-free, Nanomaterials-free, BSE-free, GMO-free, TSE-free, CMR Substances-free, SVHC Chemicals-free, Allergen-free, Not Listed In California Proposition 65, Bisphenol A-free

Features: Low Viscosity, High Performance, High Solvency

DOWANOL™ PMA glycol ether has the lowest viscosity of the entire line of DOWANOL™ glycol ethers (1.1 centipoise at 25oC), and it provides superb viscosity reduction. The remaining OH group in the glycol ether molecule is capped with an acetate group, which reduces its polarity and reduces the solvent’s viscosity. The acetate group also eliminates the reactive hydrogen from the OH group found in other glycol ethers; thus, DOWANOL™ PMA glycol ether is an excellent solvent choice for urethanes and other proton-sensitive systems. DOWANOL™ PMA glycol ether is a relatively fast-evaporating glycol ether, and it sets a performance standard in high-solids, solvent-borne systems. It provides excellent active solvency for a very wide range of resin types, including acrylics, epoxies, alkyds, polyesters and many other.

Dow North America

DOWANOL(TM) TPM Glycol Ether

Chemical Name: [2-(2-methoxymethylethoxy)methylethoxy]propanol

Function: Stabilizer, Solvent, Coupling Agent

CAS Number: 25498-49-1

Chemical Family: Glycol Ethers, Ethers, Glycols

Labeling Claims: SVHC Chemicals-free, Metal-free, TSE-free, Not Listed In California Proposition 65, Animal Products-free, Biodegradable, BSE-free, Phthalates-free, GMO-free, Allergen-free, Bisphenol A-free, Non-GMO, CMR Substances-free, Nanomaterials-free, CleanGredients (DfE), Conflict minerals-free, Environmentally Friendly

DOWANOL™ TPM glycol ether is a hydrophilic, slow-evaporating glycol ether with an excellent active solvency and coupling power. DOWANOL™ TPM glycol ether is an ideal choice when high polymer solvency and extended system residence time are required. It can maintain rheological properties over time in products such as stamp pads and ball point pen inks. 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.

DOWANOL(TM) DPM Glycol Ether

Chemical Name: Dipropylene Glycol Methyl Ether

Function: Stabilizer, Solvent, Coupling Agent, Adhesion Promoter

CAS Number: 34590-94-8

Chemical Family: Glycol Ethers, Ethers, Glycols

Labeling Claims: Metal-free, TSE-free, Not Listed In California Proposition 65, Animal Products-free, Biodegradable, BSE-free, Allergen-free, Non-GMO, Nanomaterials-free, CleanGredients (DfE), Conflict minerals-free

DOWANOL™ DPM glycol ether is a mid-to slow evaporating solvent. This hydrophilic solvent has 100% water solubility and is ideally suited as a coupling agent in a wide range of solvent systems. DOWANOL™ DPM glycol ether has a higher flash point than DOWANOL™ PM glycol ether making it easier to handle, store, and ship. Often incorporated into latex emulsion coatings DOWANOL™ DPM glycol ether can be used to prevent shocking (coagulation of emulsion) when hydrophobic solvents are used. More broadly, its hydrophilic nature makes it an ideal coupling aid in water reducible coatings, and cleaning applications. DOWANOL™ DPM glycol ether’s intermediate evaporation rate allow it to be used in a potentially wider range of systems than many other solvents.
