What is methoxypropanol?
Methoxypropanol is an organic compound with the chemical formula C4H10O2, known by other names such as propylene glycol monomethyl ether.
Methoxypropanol is a clear, colorless, bitter-tasting liquid that is highly flammable.
This material is used as a viscosity regulator of two-component epoxy and acrylic systems. Methoxypropanol is also used as an additive in metal degreasers and hydraulic fluids.
Methoxypropanol is produced from the reaction of 1-2-epoxypropane and methanol in the presence of a catalyst, and then it is used for purification from the distillation process. Every year, about one hundred to five hundred thousand tons of methoxypropanol are produced worldwide.
One of its important applications can be mentioned in the production of Propylene Glycol Methyl Ether Acetate.
Methoxypropanol is an industrial solvent and has many applications as a solvent in various industries, including paint and resin and printing industry.
It is used in the agricultural industry to produce pesticides.
Other uses of methoxypropanol include:
1. Production of polishing and polishing liquids
2. Use in antifreeze composition
3. Production of cosmetic products
4. Production of stove cleaners
5. Glue production
6. Rubber production
7. Production of industrial cleaners
Methoxypropanol has high toxicity and flammability, so it should be stored in a dry, cool and well-ventilated place.
Inhalation of methoxypropanol vapors can cause dizziness, drowsiness, nausea and vomiting in people. Prolonged exposure to this substance can cause severe skin allergies. In case of eye contact with methoxypropanol, rinse eyes with plenty of cold water.
