Methoxy-1,2-propanol, Propylene glycol-1-methyl ether, Methoxy-1,2-hydroxpropane, Methylpropylene glycol
Colorless, medium-volatility, water-miscible neutral liquid with a mild, alcoholic odour. Its favourable physiological properties make it preferable to methoxyethanol and ethoxyethanol as a solvent for coatings and printing inks.
Solvenon® PM is a clear, hygroscopic, medium-volatility liquid with a mild, alcoholic odor. It is miscible with water and many common organic solvents. By virtue of its ether and alcohol groups, Solvenon® PM has very good solvent power for many of the raw materials used in coatings, e. g. resins, binders, etc. It possesses the typical properties of the ether and alcohol groups. For instance, it may react with acids (or form esters), oxidizing agents (to form the corresponding ketones or carboxylic acids), alkali metals (to form alcoholates) or aldehydes (to form acetals). Solvenon® PM may form peroxides with atmospheric oxygen.
