CHLORIDES | METHYLENE CHLORIDE

Description
Methylene chloride (also known as dichloromethane) is an organic halogen compound with the molecular formula of CH2Cl2.  It is colourless liquid with a distinctive chloroform odour that is widely used as a solvent in paint strippers and degreasing.  This product is a non-flammable liquid, having no measurable flashpoint or flammable limits in air.  It is miscible with most organic solvents but only slightly miscible in water.

Applications
Methylene chloride is mostly used as a solvent for paint stripper, varnish removal, aerosol spray repellent and degreasing.  It is an effective solvent because of its highly volatility and stability.  It is also used in the processing of plastics, extracting fats and oils from food products.  For example, it can be used to decaffeinate coffee/tea and to prepare hops.  Methylene chloride can weld certain plastics and is therefore used in the model-making industry.  One final example of its use is in the garment printing industry for the removal of heat-sealed transfers.  The main user end markets are the paints, varnish, plastics, cosmetics and textiles industries.
