Dow North America Monoethanolamine (Mea) product card banner

Dow North America

Dow North America Monoethanolamine (MEA)

Chemical Name: Monoethanolamine (MEA)

Function: Anti-Redeposition Agent, Scouring Agent, Intermediate, Corrosion Inhibitor, Neutralizing Agent, Buffering Agent, Grinding Aid

CAS Number: 141-43-5

Chemical Family: Alcohols, Amines

Grade: Commercial Grade

DOW Monoethanolamine (MEA) offers abroad spectrum of application opportunities, primarily in detergents, textile finishing and wood treating. Other applications include use as “down hole” in oil well chemicals and in metal working to prevent corrosion, and as catalysts that promote stability during the reaction process in the manufacture of flexible and rigid urethane foams. Because MEA combines the properties of amines and alcohols, MEA exhibits the unique capability of undergoing reactions common to both groups. As an amine, MEA is mildly alkaline and react with acids to form salts or soaps. As an alcohol, MEA is hygroscopic and can be esterified. Features & Benefits Detergents MEA imparts a reserve alkalinity to the laundry bath, which is essential to efficient cleaning. MEA is an effective oil and anti-redeposition agent. Textile Finishing MEA is used as reaction intermediates for the preparation of durable press fabric finishes and softeners. When reacted to form amine soaps, useful as scouring agents for wool and silk because of its low alkalinity. Because it is hygroscopic, MEA is used in the preparation of vat printing pastes. Wood Treating MEA is used in both alkaline copper quaternary(ACQ) and copper azole formulations for treating wood to improve its resistance to pests and decay. Both are arsenic-free alternatives to the phased- out CCA formulations.

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.

Dow North America Triethanolamine (TEA)

Chemical Name: Triethanolamine (TEA)

Function: Grinding Aid, Anti-Redeposition Agent, Catalyst, Scouring Agent, Intermediate, Corrosion Inhibitor, Neutralizing Agent, Buffering Agent

CAS Number: 102-71-6

Chemical Family: Alcohols, Amines

Grade: Commercial Grade

DOW Triethanolamine (TEA) offers a broad spectrum of application opportunities, primarily in detergents and textile finishing. Other applications include use as intermediates in concrete additives and adhesive, rubber, agricultural and photographic chemicals; use as a component of cement grinding aids; use as “down hole” in oil well chemicals and in metalworking to prevent corrosion; and use as catalysts that promote stability during the reaction process in the manufacture of flexible and rigid urethane foams. Because TEA combines the properties of amines and alcohols, TEA exhibits the unique capability of undergoing reactions common to both groups. As an amine, TEA is mildly alkaline and reacts with acids to form salts or soaps. As an alcohol, TEA is hygroscopic and can be esterfied. Features & Benefits Detergents TEA imparts a reserve alkalinity to the laundry bath, which is essential to efficient cleaning. TEA is an effective oil and anti-redeposition agent. Textile Finishing TEA is used as reaction intermediates for the preparation of durable press fabric finishes and softeners. When reacted to form amine soaps, useful as scouring agents for wool and silk because of its low alkalinity. Because it is hygroscopic, TEA is used in the preparation of vat printing pastes. TEA is also useful in making acetate rayon dyes.

Butyl Cellosolve(tm) Solvent product card banner

Dow North America

Butyl CELLOSOLVE(TM) Solvent

Chemical Name: Ethylene Glycol Monobutyl Ether

Function: Solvent, Coupling Agent, Adhesion Promoter, Coalescing Agent

CAS Number: 111-76-2

Chemical Family: Glycol Ethers, Ethers, Glycols

Labeling Claims: TSE-free, Not Listed In California Proposition 65, Animal Products-free, Biodegradable, BSE-free, Allergen-free, Non-GMO, Metal-free

Butyl CELLOSOLVE™ glycol ether is a fast-evaporating glycol ether with an excellent balance of hydrophilic and hydrophobic character; excellent active solvency and coupling properties. Butyl CELLOSOLVE™ is a very versatile solvent product with a good balance of many different properties. With a nearly equal balance of hydrophobic and hydrophilic character, Butyl CELLOSOLVE™ glycol ether provides excellent performance in coatings, cleaners, and many other types of products. It is one of our fastest evaporating glycol ethers. Butyl CELLOSOLVE™ glycol ether is compatible with a wide range of resin types, and it also offers 100% water solubility.

Dowanol(tm) Pma Glycol Ether Acetate product card banner

Dow North America

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.

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.
