ARCOSOLV PM is a colorless propylene glycol ether solvent. 
ARCOSOLV PM is used in adhesive applications. 
ARCOSOLV PM possesses mild, pleasant odor and very low content of primary alcohol. 

ARCOSOLV PM can be used as a substitute for ether solvents (ethylene glycol methyl ether, ethylene glycol ethyl ether). 
ARCOSOLV PM provides good solvency for a wide variety of resins including acrylic, epoxies, alkyds, polyesters, nitrocellulose and polyurethanes.

ARCOSOLV PM is a colorless, flammable liquid with low toxicity, having a mild, pleasant odor.
ARCOSOLV PM is completely water soluble, miscible with a number of organic solvents, and has good solvency for a number of substances. 
ARCOSOLV PM and blends can be used as replacements for ethylene glycol (E-series) ether acetates, particularly EEA and EMA.

ARCOSOLV PM provides good solvency for many resin applications, including acrylics, epoxies, alkyds, polyesters, nitrocellulose and polyurethanes. 
ARCOSOLV PM is useful in cleaning, textile, adhesive and ink formulations, and as an intermediate for agricultural products. 
ARCOSOLV PM and ARCOSOLV PM acetate are also used in production of electronic components.

Application of ARCOSOLV PM:
In the electronics market, ARCOSOLV PM is used in conjunction with other solvents (like DMF and/or acetone) in the manufacture of laminates for printed circuit boards. Additionally,
ARCOSOLV PM may be used in the cleaning and removal of solder flux and masks, and in blends as an edge bead remover.

Storage of ARCOSOLV PM:
General industry practice is to store ARCOSOLV PM in carbon steel vessels. 
Avoid contact with air when storing for long periods of time. 

Store ARCOSOLV PM only in tightly closed, properly vented containers away from heat, sparks, open flame or strong oxidizing agents. 
Use only non-sparking tools.

Ground containers before beginning transfer. 
Electrical equipment should conform to national electric code. 

Handle empty containers carefully. 
ARCOSOLV PM is flammable, combustible residue remains after emptying. 

Store ARCOSOLV PM in properly lined steel or stainless steel to avoid slight discoloration from mild steel. 
Glycol ethers should never be stored or handled in copper or copper alloys. 
ARCOSOLV PM may absorb water if exposed to air.

Safety and Handling of ARCOSOLV PM:
ARCOSOLV PM has a flash point of 89ºF. 
ARCOSOLV PM is a flammable liquid.

Undue exposure or spillage should be strictly avoided as a matter of good practice. 
Refer to the Material Safety Data Sheet for ARCOSOLV PM for more specific information. 

First Aid Measures of ARCOSOLV PM 

After adequate first aid, no further treatment is required unless symptoms reappear.
If you feel unwell, seek medical advice.

If overcome by exposure, remove victim to fresh air immediately. 
Give oxygen or artificial respiration as needed. 

Obtain emergency medical attention. 
Prompt action is essential.

Thoroughly flush the eyes with large amounts of clean low-pressure water for at least 15 minutes, occasionally lifting the upper and lower eyelids. 
If irritation persists, seek medical attention.

Remove contaminated clothing as needed. 
Wash skin thoroughly with mild soap and water.

Flush with lukewarm water for 15 minutes. 
If sticky, use waterless cleaner first.
Seek medical attention if discomfort persists.
