DMEA – N,N-dimethylethanolamine
DMEA (N, N-DIMETHYLETHANOLAMINE) is a clear, colorless liquid catalyst with an ammonia odor. It can be mixed with water, alcohols, ether and aromatic solvents. It is mainly used in the preparation of water-reducible coating formulations.
Also DMEA is one of the raw materials used to make dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate. (It is used in various fields such as polymers produced from methacrylate, antistatic agents, soil conditioners, electrically conductive materials, paper auxiliaries and flocculants.)
Apart from these applications, DMEA condensing boiler water can be used to control corrosion in return lines.
