DMSO is used broadly in many industrial applications including etching solutions for the microelectronic industry, replacement of problem solvents in paint stripping formulations and basic cleaning solutions.  Due to it’s low toxicity profile, DMSO is often used as a replacement for problem solvents


Photoresist stripping

DMSO is an essential solvent in the production of microchips and flat panel displays.


Paint stripping 

Use DMSO to formulate powerful paintstripping and graffiti removal products, as a nontoxic alternative to methylene chloride and NMP.


Cleaning solvent

DMSO softens and dissolves many types of polymers, and is especially useful as a cleaning solvent for polyurethane and polyester (FRP) processes.
