Mono Ethylene Glycol (MEG) is a versatile chemical compatible with water and numerous organic compounds. Mono Ethylene Glycol (MEG) is the most widely used chemical from the Glycol family. It is an essential raw material for Polyester fibres and Polyethylene Triathlete (PET) polymer. MEG based products are also used as coolants in Automobile antifreeze, resins, homogenates for tobacco / paper etc.
Applications and use :
MEG is an essential raw material for Polyester. MEG reacts with PTA / DMT to produce polyester.
MEG and DEG is used in latex based paint formulation. These glycol's are also used to produce acolyte and microlight resins for coatings, adhesives, and paints.
MEG is used as a reactant in the manufacture of Alkyd resins which are used in Paints, enamels and varnishes.
MEG is used as an active ingredient in engine coolants and antifreeze, offering benefits including a high boiling point, low vapor pressure, excellent heat transfer abilities, and the ability to depress the freezing point of water.
MEG finds applications in products like Dyes & Inks for High speed printing.
