Technical DataSheet | Supplied by Ascend Performance Materials

FlexaTrac™ DME-100 by Ascend Performance Materials is a low-VOC (volatile organic compound) dimethyl ester (DME). Acts as a readily biodegradable blending solvent. Exhibits excellent polymer solvency, excellent HSE rate and controlled solvent evaporation rate. It has an excellent health, safety and environment-friendly profile with mild to no odor. Shows high miscibility with most organic solvents. It is a clear and colorless liquid. Suitable for use on wood, plastic and metal substrates without damaging the substrate surface. FlexaTrac™ DME-100 by Ascend Performance Materials is a good alternative to perceived non-environmental friendly options such as acetates, dicholoro methane (DCM), glycol ethers and n-methyl-2-pyrolidone (nMP). Can be used in household and professional paint strippers on a wide range of resins including acrylics, alkyds, polyesters and polyurethanes. Designed to meet the LVP-VOC (low vapor pressure–volatile organic compound) criteria established by the California Air Resources Board and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s VOC requirements for consumer and institutional products.
