Dimethylethylamine – DMEA properties
Usually known as DMEA, dimethylethylamine (C4H11N) is very present in foundries. This gas is used as a cross-linking agent for synthetic resins (phenoplasts, polyurethanes), which are essentially used in foundries core-making process. It is also a polymerization catalyst for polyamides.

Dimethylethylamine – DMEA effects on health
Dimethylethylamine (DMEA) is a highly flammable gas with explosive limits between 2.3 and 12% volume. While burning, this gas exhausts very toxic fumes that contain ammonia, nitrogen oxides and traces of cyanide. This is also a toxic gas, harmful when inhaled (H332) or ingested (H302). As it is very irritating, it might cause skin burns and severe eye damage.
