Applications for MEG

Monoethylene Glycol (MEG) can be used for applications that require chemical intermediates for resins, solvent couplers, freezing point depression, solvents, humectants and chemical intermediates. These applications are vital to the manufacture of a wide range of products, including resins; deicing fluids; heat transfer fluids; automotive antifreeze and coolants; water-based adhesives, latex paints and asphalt emulsions; electrolytic capacitors; textile fibers; paper and leather.

PROPERTIES/CHARACTERISTICS (MEG)    APPLICATIONS/USES

Chemical Intermediate for Resins

  • Polyester resins (fibers, containers and films)
  • Resin esters as plasticizers (adhesives, lacquers and enamels)
  • Alkyd-type resins (synthetic rubbers, adhesives, surface coatings)

Solvent Coupler

  • Stabilizer against gel formation
  • Freezing Point Depression
  • Deicing fluids
  • Heat transfer fluids (gas compressors, heating, ventilating, air conditioning, process chillers, ice rinks)
  • All-weather automotive antifreeze and coolants
  • Water-based formulations (adhesives, latex paints, asphalt emulsions)

Solvent

  • Medium for suspending conductive salt in electrolytic capacitors

Humectant

  • Textile fibers
  • Paper
  • Leather
