DOWANOL DPnB glycol ether is a slow-evaporating, hydrophobic glycol ether with excellent surface tension-lowering ability and coalescing properties. DOWANOL DPnB is a relatively slow-evaporating solvent which is one of our most efficient coalescents in water-borne latex systems. This product is compatible with many different resin types. DOWANOL DPnB glycol ether also provides excellent surface tension lowering ability, and is useful in cleaning products by itself or when blended with other products such as DOWANOL DPM glycol ether. Used alone in cold metal cleaning, DOWANOL DPnB glycol ether is a good solvent for removing oils and greases

Supplier UNIVAR
Synonyms Dipropylene glycol n-butyl ether
  • Coupling agent and solvent in household and industrial cleaners, grease and paint removers, metal cleaners, and hard surface cleaners.
  • Effective coalescent for lowering minimum film formation temperature MFFT) in water-borne latex coatings.
  • Active solvent for solvent-based coatings.
  • Chemical intermediate for the production of epoxides, acid ester derivatives, solvents, and plasticizers.
  • Effective solvent for water-reducible coatings.
  • DOWANOL™ DPnB glycol ether combines a number of properties that contribute to very high latex film quality:
    • High polymerplasticizing efficiency
    • Large molecular size and therefore greater polymer mobility contribution
    • Strong partitioning to the polymer phase
    • Relatively slow evaporation rate
