FlexaTrac™-DME is an excellent solvent for many applications. Ascend offers several grades and mixtures of FlexaTrac-DME, ranging from highly purified grades to specific mixtures of two or three ester components.

FlexaTrac-DME (dimethyl or dibasic esters) is a clear, colorless, low-odor liquid produced by reacting methanol with streams of adipic, glutaric and succinic acids and then separated via fractionation.

FlexaTrac-DMEs provide attractive alternatives to other solvents:

  • Low volatile organic compounds (VOC)
  • Biodegradable
  • High solvency power

Ascend’s dimethyl esters meet the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s standards for inherent biodegradability.
