KEY FEATURES

  • Colour: Clear, Colourless

  • Powerful, aprotic solvent with high solvency and low volatility

  • Thermal stability – high boiling and high flash point

  • Miscible with water at all temperatures

APPLICATIONS

  • Electronics
    Used in the electronics industry as a photoresist stripper. It also has a widespread acceptance as a solvent in semi-aqueous defluxing, degreasing and coatings (poly-amide, epoxy and polyurethane).

  • Graffiti Removers

  • Agriculture
    The industry takes advantage of NMP’s solvency in handling herbicide, pesticide and fungicide formulations.

  • Pharmaceuticals
    NMP is used in pharmaceutical synthetic procedure because of its broad solvency. One potential use for NMP is as a dermal penetration enhancer for pharmaceuticals.

  • Consumer and Industrial Cleaners
    NMP is an effective stripping agent used in floor stripping, cleaning of ovens and as paint strippers. Due to its high solvency., it is used in automotive and industrial cleaners with other hydrocarbon solvents.

  • Coatings Solvent
    A powerful solvent for most commercial resins. With its high boiling point and excellent solvent power, NMP extends and improves the properties of high temperature bake coatings. For example, high solid binders are more easily obtained with NMP as the solvent. Quite often, baked finishes yield coatings with outstanding mechanical and dielectric properties. NMP also aids rheological control: better flow and leveling, less cratering and pin-hole defects. NMP has been shown to be highly effective in many high temperature coating applications. It is also a preferred solvent for urethane dispersion and an excellent coalescent for acrylic and styrene acrylic latexes.

  • Petrochemical Processing

  • Miscellaneous Solvent Applications
    NMP can serve as a co-solvent with water, aromatic/chlorinated hydrocarbons, alcohols, glycol ethers and ketones.
