Methylene chloride Overview Transcript


Methylene chloride is a chlorinated solvent used in a wide variety of applications. In the solvent sector it is often used as a paint stripper, metal degreaser and general use solvent,


However, many of these uses are being phased out gradually because of methylene chloride’s potential toxicity.


It is also a key feedstock for the refrigerant R410a which is widely used in industrial and commercial applications. Because it does not deplete the ozone R410a has replaced a number of refrigerants.


Methylene chloride supply is tight after capacity rationalisation hit the market a few years ago. With strengthening demand from the refrigerants sector, the chemical’s future looks strong.
