Duro Kimia is the distributor of high quality Methylal, also known as Dimethoxymethane, from Lambiotte & Cie (Belgium).
Other terms: Methylal; Formaldehyde dimethyl ether; Dimethylformal (DMFL); Formaldehyde dimethylacetal; Methoxymethyl methyl ether; Methylene dimethyl ether
High solvent strength
Fast evaporation rate (Twice of standard ethanol)
Excellent environmental profile
Favourable toxicology profile
Safest profile for people and environment
Economical solution – with the limited choices of blowing agents in the market
Fantastic miscibility with polyols or combined with other blowing agents with limited solubility to increase the formulation’s miscibility
Higher blowing ability compared to HCFC-141b
Better foam uniformity
Lowers flammability of Cyclopentane (C5) produced foam when formulation is mixed with Methylal
With emphasis on environmental impacts, HCFC-141b (Dichlorofluoroethane) is becoming uncommon in the market and must be phased out worldwide.
Methylal is used either as a substitute or combination in the formulations of polyurethane foams.
High solvent strength to solubilise active ingredients and stabilize overall formulation
Fast drying time – cooling effect, reduces time of dampness
Improves wetting capability
Reduces aerosol particle sizes and the average size is made consistent for a smoother output
