Product Description

Di Methyl Succinate (commonly referred as DME) is an environment-friendly biodegradable blending solvent that can be used in household and professional paint stripping jobs. It has an excellent health, safety and environmental profile with mild to no odor. DME meets OECD's standards for inherent biodegradability. DME can be safely used on wood, plastic and metal substrates without damaging the substrate surface. DME has excellent polymer solvency, excellent HSE profile, mild to no odor, controlled solvent evaporation rate, high miscibility with most organic solvents and is readily biodegradable. DME is a very good replacement for N-Methyl Pyrolidone (NMP) in paint stripping and many other applications.

Major Applications

As a paint stripper on a wide range of resins including acrylics, alkyds, polyesters and polyurethanes. DME is an environment-friendly alternative to n-methyl pyrolidone (NMP) which has been found reproductive toxicant for human and animals. DME is also a good replacement for not-so-environment-friendly solvents like Acetates, Di-Chloro Methane (DCM) and Glycol Ethers.
