Rhodiasolv® RPDE is a classical dibasic ester solvent presenting an excellent Health, Security and Environment profile (Toxicity, VOC*, and biodegradability) in a wide range of applications: coil and can coating formulation, resins for foundry cores, paint stripping, formulation for pesticides, insecticides, printing inks…
Customer's challengesThe customers are looking for solvents combining excellent environment profile to meet HSE regulation, and powerful solution for formulation in resins, paints, cleaning product or for dissolving polar substrates.
Features & Benefits
Rhodiasolv® RPDE presents wide features and benefits in terms of efficiency and HSE properties:
• Safe to use
Safety: Rhodiasolv® RPDE is a safe solvent regarding to physical properties: its high boiling (200°c) and flash points (100°C) make it a non flammable product, and offer a large formulating temperature. Moreover, its low toxic and non irritant properties grant to Rhodiasolv® RPDE a safety use.
VOC: This classical Dibasic ester solvent is a non VOC regarding to European directive (1999/13/EC) and American legislation (CARB/ EPA 40FR 59.203(f)1).
• An “Ecofriendly” dibasic ester solvent
Rhodiasolv® RPDE is readily biodegradable and is non toxic solvent for aquatic organisms. Combining to the non VOC properties, this dibasic ester solvent is an excellent alternative to traditional product.
For example, Rhodiasolv® RPDE can substitute methylene chloride (R40 classed product: can induce irreversible effects) in cleaning operation. This solvent can replace isophorone and glycol ether in order to reduce environment impact for coil coating.
• A powerful solvent
Rhodiasolv® RPDE is an ideal solution to dissolve polar substrate, and can be easily use in formulation, in a wide range of application.
This solvent is soluble in a many different resins: cellulose nitrate, acrylic, polyurethane, polyester, aminoplast, phenoplast, alkyd, epoxy and vinyl.
Rhodiasolv® RPDE is traditionally used for coil and can coating for paint formulation, and as a key solvent in resins for foundry cores (cold box technology). The solvent is also use in a number of new applications in order to meet HSE regulation such as paint stripping, pesticides and insecticides formulations, printing inks.
