[Usage] Methyl formate is used primarily to manufacture formamide, dimethylformamide, and formic acid. Because of methyl formate's high vapor pressure, methyl formate is used for quick-drying finishes. Methyl formate is also used as an insecticide and to manufacture certain pharmaceuticals. Also methyl formate is used as a blowing agent for foam insulation, as a replacement for CFC, HCFC, or HFCs, with zero ozone depletion potential and <25 global warming potential.

[packing] Methyl formate has two packings: 190kg/drum, ISO TANK
