GLYCOL ETHER DB DOW, Technical Grade, Liquid, Drum

Glycol Ether DB is a clear liquid with mild, pleasant odors.  Due to the presence of both an ether and a hydroxyl group in the same molecule, this product is miscible in water, as well as most organic solvents.  Glycol Ether DB is used in paint and coatings, hard-surface cleaners, polishes, solvents, chemical intermediates, surfactants, agricultural chemicals and corrosion inhibitors.  It is also used in the electronics market.

Benefits

  • High Boiling, Slow Evaporating Glycol Ether
  • Outstanding solvent and coupling agent.
  • Has an alcohol component to dissolve water soluble soil and a ether part to dissolve oil soluble soils.
  • Act by itself or in combination with surfactants to lower the surface tension of cleaning solutions.
  • Slow evaporation rate to provide longer contact time necessary to penetrate grease and baked on material.
