Propylene glycol monomethyl ether acetate (PGMEA/PMA), also known as propylene glycol methyl ether acetate, is a colorless hygroscopic liquid with a unique odor. It is a non-polluting solvent with multi-functional groups. Its molecular formula is C6H12O3. Not only it is used as a solvent for printing ink, paint, ink, textile dyes and textile oil, it is also used as a cleaning agent in the production of liquid crystal displays. PGMEA/PMA is flammable, and when the temperature is above 42°C, it may form explosive vapor/air mixture.
