Dimethyl Ether


*Dimethyl Ether (DME) is used as propellant gas in the aerosol spray production and as blowing agent in the production of extruded polystyrene insulation boards (XPS) and production of polyurethane foam.

*The environmentally friendly blowing agent/propellant gas solution with high solvency power is Dimethyl Ether (DME) against chlorofluorocarbon gases which have adverse effects on the environment.

*Dimethyl Ether (DME) consumption in the EU is rapidly growing and becoming prevalent. Dimethyl Ether (DME) can be used in pure state or blended with other propellants.
