INEOS Paraform GmbH & Co. KG, has today announced the start up of its new Dimethoxymethane (Methylal) plant, based at the companies site in Mainz, Germany. 

Methylal is an additive used in polyacetal and ion exchange resins. Due to its strong solvent power, its low toxicity and low viscosity it is used in a broad range of applications among others aerosols, paint strippers, cosmetics, cleaning agents, PU foams.
