HSN CODE : 29031200

At Ideal Chemicals, we market the premium quality product - Methylene Chloride (MDC), which is manufactured by our principal using the technology of Shin-Et-Su, Japan.

Methylene Chloride (or dichloromethane) is a colourless volatile liquid with a sweet smell. It is extensively used as a chemical solvent. It is insoluble in water but miscible with organic solvents.

Methylene Chloride is synthetically produced by reacting methyl chloride or methane with Chlorine gas at 400-5000C. Methane and methyl chloride undergo a series of chain reaction and yield chlorinated products progressively.
Methylene Chloride (or Dichloromethane) volatility and its ability to dissolve with numerous organic compounds make it a useful organic solvent for many chemical processes. However, methylene chloride’s ill effect on health has forced the scientists to look for its alternatives. The applications of methylene chloride are :
Major use in Pharmaceutical industry
Manufacturing of Polycarbonates, Phenolics, Rayon yarn.
Solvent for Cellulose Acetates, Photo-resist, Tablet film coatings.
Paint and Grease Removing Agent.
Fire-Fighting Agent.
Extractant for Edible fats, Cocoa, Butter and Essences.
Adhesives for Polymethyl Methacrylate.
Aerosol Propellant, Refrigerant.
Chemical Reaction Media.
Low-temperature heat-transfer medium.
