Methoxy Propanol also known as dowanol PM is a glycol commonly used in surface coating formulations. Methoxy Propanol is a non-flammable product with a distillation range of 117-125°C and a specific gravity of 0.921. Our Methoxy Propanol 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, Methoxy Propanol is the fastest evaporating and offers better viscosity reduction than heavier molecular weight glycol ethers.
Methoxy Propanol Uses
Methoxy Propanol is widely used in coating and cleaning applications, it offers better viscosity in epoxy and high solids acrylic systems, Methoxy Propanol 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. Methoxy Propanol is also used as an additive in metal degreasing agents and hydraulic fluids.
