ETHYLENE GLYCOL

Ethylene glycol (IUPAC name: ethane-1,2-diol) is an organic compound widely used as an automotive antifreeze and a precursor to polymers. In its pure form, it is an odorless, colorless, syrupy, sweet tasting liquid (although it should be noted that ethylene glycol is toxic, and ingestion can result in death).

Ethylene glycols play a significant role in industry due to their physical properties and function as versatile intermediates in a wide range of applications.

Antifreeze and Coolants
Chemical Intermediates
Gas Dehydration and Treating
Heat Transfer Fluids
Polyester Resins
Solvents

Monoethylene Glycol

Monoethylene glycol (MEG) is an important raw material for industrial applications. A primary use of MEG is in the manufacture of polyester (PET) resins, films and fibers. In addition, MEG is important in the production of antifreezes, coolants, aircraft anti-icer and deicers and solvents.

Diethylene Glycol

Diethylene glycol (DEG) is a valuable chemical intermediate used in the production of unsaturated polyester resins (UPR), plasticizers, acrylate and methacrylate resins and urethanes.

Applications for Diethylene Glycol:

 

Polyester Resins
Antifreeze and Coolants
Gas Dehydration and Treating
Chemical Intermediates
Heat Transfer Fluids
Solvents

Triethylene Glycol

'We offers two grades of TEG: triethylene glycol, regular grade and triethylene glycol, high-purity grade, which is designed to meet high-purity specifications for applications such as polyester resins, UV-curable resins and plasticizers.

With a lower volatility and a higher boiling point than monoethylene glycol (MEG) or diethylene glycol (DEG), Triethylene glycol (TEG) is widely used as a dehumidifying agent for air and natural gas. TEG is often used to make chemical intermediates such as plasticizers and esters.

Applications for Triethylene Glycol:
Polyester Resins
Gas Dehydration and Treating
Chemical Intermediates
Heat Transfer Fluids
Solvents

Tetraethylene Glycol

Dow offers two grades of TETRA EG: tetraethylene glycol, regular grade and tetraethylene glycol, high-purity grade, which is designed for high-purity specifications in applications such as polyester resins, UV-curable resins and plasticizers.

Tetraethylene Glycol (TETRA EG) features a higher boiling point and lower volatility than the lower ethylene glycols. It is completely miscible with water and a wide range of organic solvents, but has only a very slight affinity for certain aliphatic hydrocarbons.

TETRA EG is especially useful in polyester resins and as a plasticizer. TETRA EG is also used as a chemical intermediate and as a solvent in the production of inks and dyes. TETRA EG is often used as a process solvent in hydrocarbon purification processes and as a coupling agent in the production of textile lubricants and formulations.

Applications for Tetraethylene Glycol:
Polyester Resins
Gas Dehydration and Treating
Chemical Intermediates
Heat Transfer Fluids
Solvents
