DBE solvents from INVISTA help address regulations
Apr '08
INVISTA is targeting the aerosol coatings market with two DBE solvents.

The products, DBETM MIR .23 and DBETM MIR .51, offer increased flexibility to formulators of aerosol coatings faced with meeting federal and state regulations limiting the volatile organic compounds in their products based on photochemical reactivity as measured by the Maximum Incremental Reactivity (MIR) scale.

“Textile companies and aerosol coatings formulators are aggressively seeking more efficient and effective ways to reduce the amount of volatile organic compounds in their products to meet reactivity-based VOC regulations,” said Eileene Keating, INVISTA DBE Global Market Development Manager.

“DBETM MIR .23 and DBETM MIR .51 solvents can help formulators maintain the efficacy of their products at the same time that they meet these regulations.”

INVISTA DBE solvent products are a family of effective, low vapor pressure, readily biodegradable solvent alternatives to chlorinated solvents like methylene chloride and other solvents, such as glycol ethers (E-series, P-series), certain ketones (methyl ethyl ketone-MEK), and hydrocarbons.

DBETM dibasic esters are ideal for solvent and water compatible formulations and are non-flammable and non-corrosive.
