  • Glycol Ether EB provides excellent performance in coatings, cleaners, and many other types of products. It is compatible with a wide range of resin types, and it also offers 100% water solubility.

Applications & Uses

Home Care Applications
Product Applications
  • Coatings: Glycol Ether DPM provides good solvency for a wide variety of resins including acrylic, epoxies, alkyds, polyesters, nitrocellulose and polyurethanes. Glycol Ether DPM has a relatively low vapor pressure (volatility) and evaporates at a slow rate. Key properties for coating applications include complete water miscibility and good coupling ability.
  • Cleaners: Surface tension reduction and slow evaporation are some of the benefits of using Glycol Ether DPM in cleaning formulations.
  • DPM has a low odor and slow evaporation rate. It is a good choice for wax strippers and floor cleaners which are spread over a large area. When used in an enclosed area, a floor cleaner containing a fast-evaporating solvent might produce an undesirable amount of solvent vapor. Glycol Ether DPM provides good solvency for polar and non-polar materials.
  • Other Applications: The properties listed in the previous section also support the use of Glycol Ether DPM in agricultural, cosmetic, electronic, ink, textile and adhesive products.

Storage & Handling

Storage & Material Compatibility Guidelines
  • General industry practice is to store Glycol Ether DPM in carbon steel vessels. Avoid contact with air when storing for long periods of time. Store only in tightly closed, properly vented containers away from heat, sparks, open flame or strong oxidizing agents. Use only non-sparking tools. Ground containers before beginning transfer. Electrical equipment should conform to national electric code.
  • Handle empty containers carefully. Combustible residue remains after emptying. Store in properly lined steel or stainless steel to avoid slight discoloration from mild steel. Glycol ethers should never be stored or handled in copper or copper alloys. This product may absorb water if exposed to air.
  • Stainless steel is recommended for valves, pumps and filters. Teflon is suitable for gaskets. Buna N, butylene polymers and Neoprene are known to swell in contact with Glycol Ether DPM. Information from material suppliers and specific conditions of contact should be considered in the selection of suitable materials.
