ECO-FRIENDLY high boiling point solvent MDBE
MDBE (DuPont DBE) is dibasic acid ester mixtures, also known as dibasic esters. It’s a low toxicity, slightly aromatic, biodegradable environmental-friendly high boiling solvent, which has been widely used in coating industries and other application fields.
Our MDBE series contain Dimethyl succinate, Dimethyl glutarate, Dimethyl adipate and their different proportions of mixtures.
