  • EPA Releases Final Risk Assessment for Chemical Used for Paint and Coating Removal – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the final risk assessment for N-Methylpyrrolidone (NMP), a chemical commonly used to remove paint and other coatings. NMP is a common alternative to methylene chloride, also known as Dichloromethane, a chemical-based paint and coating remover. The assessment identified risks to pregnant women and women of childbearing age, who have high exposure to NMP through paint or other coating removal.
