Non-HAP Solvent

November 30, -0001

Kingsport, TN-based Eastman Chemical Company has introduced Methyl Propyl Ketone, its non-HAP solvent for pre-saturated industrial wipes. Eastman MPK helps original equipment manufacturers, such as those in the automotive, aerospace and appliance industries, achieve optimal performance from their coatings while meeting strict environmental requirements.

Wipes saturated with Eastman MPK are suited for use in surface preparation and pretreatment to enhance the bonding of coatings, sealants and adhesives. Eastman MPK is reportedly an effective replacement for MEK and toluene, which are listed on the Environmental Protection Agency’s HAP list.
