DMM is an aprotic and inert solvent used in water-based polyurethane coatings with molecular formula C8H18O3 and a molecular weight of 162.23 g/mol. Dipropylene glycol dimethyl ether is also known as 1-methoxy-3-(3-methoxypropoxy)propan.

It is a colourless liquid with mild odour, miscible with most common organic solvents but with limited solubility in water.



As aprotic (no hydroxyl functionality), DMM can be used in proton sensitive systems such as water-based polyurethane coatings but also as an azeotroping solvent for esterification reactions.

Features & Benefits:

  • High solvency
  • Low odour
  • Low toxicity
  • Moderate evaporation rate
  • Heat resistance
  • Chemical resistance


DMM is mainly used for coating resins, cleaners, textiles, cosmetics, automotive construction application.


DMM is available in drums
