EPA Bans All Retail Distribution of Methylene Chloride to Consumers for Paint and Coating Removal

EPA Bans All Retail Distribution of Methylene Chloride to Consumers for Paint and Coating Removal

As of November 22, 2019, Methylene Chloride (MeCl or Dichloromethane) was banned all over America for retail sales and distribution.  There were mainly 3 reasons: 1- human deaths related to its use in contained areas; 2- its environmental toxicity (water & air) and 3- its carcinogenicity.

MeCl is the main substance contained in most (if not all) effective 'room temperature' paint strippers.  It was often combined with other substances also very toxic such as Phenol & Hydrofluoric Acid.  Greensolv never used MeCl as raw material and we dedicated our Research & development at making paint strippers
