Dibasic esters – Environmentally friendly alternatives to methylene chloride or NMP
DBEs are highly effective solvents that impress for their dissolving diversity and their rate of dissolution. DBEs are especially attractive for applications in which “traditional” solvents are unwanted or prohibited, and are suitable for substituting almost any conventional solvent.
DBEs exhibit impressive solubility even for hardened residues. Thanks to excellent film-forming properties, these esters also perform well as coalescents.
Typical applications for DBEs are
- Paint strippers
- Paints and coatings
- Resins & binders
- Solvent mixtures for cleaning machines
The DBEs from Radici Chimica SPA are available in two variants: as dimethyl-esters (DBE) and as diisobuytl-esters (DBE-IB).
