Dowanol PM also known as methoxy propanol is a glycol commonly used in surface coating formulations. Dowanol PM is a flammable product with a distillation range of 117-125°C and a specific gravity of 0.921. Our dowanol PM is very pure with less than 0.01 of water content. It is very fast evaporating and has a high water solubility and active solvency. Out of all the glycols, Dowanol PM is the fastest evaporating and offers better viscosity reduction than heavier molecular weight glycol ethres.
Dowanol PM Uses
Dowanol PM is widely used in coating and cleaning applications, it offers better viscosity in epoxy and high solids acrylic systems, Dowanol PM can be used as a coupling agent and solvent for household and industrial cleaners, rust removers and hard surface cleaner. It can also be used in 2-pack epoxies and graffiti removers, and for certain ink and cleaning applications. Dowanol PM is also used as an additive in metal degreasing agents and hydraulic fluids.
