Glycol Ether Solvents

DOWANOL™ DPM Glycol Ether, DOWANOL™ PnB Glycol Ether and DOWANOL™ PnP Glycol Ether are fast-evaporating solvents that make them excellent alternatives to ethanol in air care products. DOWANOL™ EPh6 Glycol Ether improves solubilization and emulsification of fragrance without filming or streaking effects.

Specialty Surfactants

Dow’s specialty surfactants such as TERGITOL™ 15-S-9 Surfactant and ECOSURF™ SA-7 Surfactant are designed to perform synergistically with solvents to improve fragrance solubilization in air products at low surfactant levels.

Enabling product efficiency and effectiveness in liquid and gel formulations

At Dow, we provide solutions for air care products in liquid and gel formats to meet consumer demand for a longer-lasting and fresher scent experience.

For liquid formats, our solvents are excellent carriers of fragrance in products such as plug-ins and diffusers. For gel-type products, our solvents help control evaporation rate to ensure consistent delivery of fragrance over several weeks.

With extensive market understanding, Dow offers innovative solutions that connect performance with an improved environmental profile.

Dow Glycol Ether Solvents

Dow glycol ether solvents enable solubilization of fragrances and the evaporation profile for consistent fresh scent. We offer fast-evaporating solvents such as DOWANOL™ DPM Glycol Ether and VOC-exempt solutions such as DOWANOL™ EPh6 Glycol Ether  and DOWANOL™ TPM Glycol Ether. Also, DOWANOL™ DPMA Glycol Ether Acetate is a low-evaporating option with excellent solvency.
