Eastman™ DMCD

Eastman Chemical

Eastman™ DMCD (Dimethyl 1,4-Cyclohexanedicarboxylate) is a low melting, cycloaliphatic diester used for the synthesis of polyester resins, polyamides, alkyds, and plasticizers. Coatings formulated with DMCD bring excellent hardness/flexibility balance and good chemical, stain, humidity, and corrosion resistance. Its outstanding hydrolytic stability makes it a good choice in waterborne polyester resins. DMCD can be used to make polyester polyols for polyurethane coatings.
