MONO ETHYLENE GLYCOL

Mono Ethlyene Glycol(MEG)

Formula:C2H6O2

Hs Code(Mono Ethlyene Glycol):29053100

Description

Monoethylene glycol (MEG) in its pure form, it is an odorless, colorless, syrupy liquid with a sweet taste. It is mainly used for two purposes, as a raw material in the manufacture of polyester fibers and for antifreeze formulations.

Properties

Molar mass: 62.07 g/mol

Boiling point: 197.3 °C

Autoignition temperature: 410 °C (770 °F; 683 K)

Viscosity: 1.61×10−2 Pa·s

Uses

There is strong global demand for Mono Ethylene Glycol as it is a vital ingredient in the production of polyester fibres, films, and resins, one of which is polyethylene terephthalate (PET).  The PET is then converted into plastic bottles which are used globally.  It is estimated that 70-80% of all the MEG consumed is used as a chemical intermediate in these polyester production processes.

The second largest market for MEG is in antifreeze applications where it is a component in the manufacture of antifreeze, coolants, aircraft anti-icer, and de-icers.

Mono ethylene glycol also has humectant properties and this makes it ideal for use in the fibre treatment of textiles, the paper industry, and in adhesives, inks, and cellophane.

It is also a used as a dehydration agent in natural gas pipelines where it inhibits the formation of natural gas clathrates before being recovered from the gas and reused.
