MISCELLANEOUS | DIMETHOXY PROPANOL (DPM)

Dimethoxy propanol (DPM)

Description
Dipropylene glycol monomethyl ether (also known as Methoxy Propoxy Propanol, Oxybispropanol, dipropylene glycol methyl ether, DPM, and Dowanol DPM) is a propylene oxide-based, or P series, glycol ether and has the formula C7H16O3.  It  is a clear, colourless, viscous liquid which has a slight ether odour. It is also practically non- toxic, and is hygroscopic, and thus lends itself well to commercial and industrial use.

Applications

Dipropylene glycol monomethyl ether (DPM)   One of its main commercial uses is as a solvent for paints, varnishes, inks, strippers, and degreasers.  It is also utilised as a coalescing agent for water-based paints and inks where it promotes polymer fusing during the drying process. It is also a component of hydraulic fluids and industrial degreasers and is a chemical additive in the oil production and drilling industry.

DPM  is a useful chemical building block in the manufacture of other products as it reacts with acids to form esters, oxidising agents to form aldehydes or carboxylic acids, alkali metals to form alcoholates, and aldehydes to form acetals.  It is found in ceiling and wall paints, and in many common cleaners including glass and surface cleaners, paint-brush cleaners, all-purpose cleaners, carpet cleaners, and disinfectant cleaners.  It is also found in cosmetics where it provides emoillient properties and product stabilisation.  It is also found in floor polish and aluminium polish, leather and textile dyes, rust removers, and pescticides where it acts as a stabiliser.
