Jan 29, 2018

Dipropylene glycol mono methyl ether (DPM) is a clear, colorless, combustible liquid with a slight ether odor. It is completely soluble in water, and has moderate volatility. DPM is a propylene oxide-based, or P-series, glycol ether.

DPMA has the lowest viscosity of entire P-series glycol ethers and their acetates, 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, so PMA is an excellent aprotic solvent for urethanes and other proton-sensitive systems.


we hv a very good source of it from china ,price may very competitive, if you hv demands, pls contact me at any time, thank you !
