Dimethylolbutanoic Acid

We are a distributor of the product Dimethylolbutanoic Acid for Eastern and Western Europe, but with excellent opportunities for export outside of Europe.

Description and uses

With a tertiary carboxylic acid group and two reactive hydroxyl groups, Dimethylol Butanoic Acid is one single molecule that offers the functionalities of water-soluble polyurethane and polyester.

  • Highly solubility in organic solvents.
  • 10 times more soluble in acetone than dimethyl propanoic acid.
  • Does not require N-Methyl Pyrrolidine as a co-solvent.
  • Does not have a coagulation problem.
  • Gives a clear solution after the reaction.


Some examples on the use of DMBA:

  • (water soluble) polyurethane dispersions
  • chemical building block
  • photo chemicals
  • printing inks
  • alkyds & polyesters
