What is Tripropylene Glycol Methyl Ether? More commonly known as Glycol TPM, Tripropylene Glycol is a mixture of organic compounds that is typically utilized as a solvent industrially and in laboratories. Benefits of Glycol TPM Powerful solvency. Low evaporation rate. Low viscosity. High dilution rate. Coupling ability. Common Applications Glycol TPM is commonly used as […]

Heptane In Printing Ink

Similar to chemicals such as Tripropylene Glycol Methyl Ether or Dipropylene Glycol Methyl Ether, Heptane is a product that is present in many consumer printing inks. Solvents are often used for this purpose, especially if they have a slow evaporation rate. Slow evaporation rates allow inks to dry slowly and last as long as possible, […]
