Mono Ethylene Glycol
- It’s miscible with water, alcohols, and many other organic compounds
- It is primarily used in the industry for manufacturing polyester fibres and as a component in the production of antifreeze, coolants, aircraft anti-icers and de-icers.
- Mono ethylene glycol is also used as a solvent in paints and electrolytic condensers, as a desiccant in gas pipelines to prohibit the formation of clathrates, as a chemical intermediate in the production of capacitors, as an industrial humectant in fibres, adhesives, cellophane, synthetic waxes.
- Mono Ethylene Glycol (MEG) is a colourless, odourless, non-volatile liquid.
- It is completely miscible in water and many organic solvents.
- MEG manufactured is of minimum 99.5 per cent purity and meets the required UV transmittance values specified by polyester manufacturers.
- Mono-ethylene glycol – or MEG – is a vital ingredient for the production of polyester fibres and film, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resins and engine coolants.
- It is a slightly viscous liquid with a clear, colourless appearance and a sweet taste that emits virtually no odour.
