PRODUCT NAME : DI ETHYLENE GLYCOL (DEG)
DEG is produced by the partial hydrolysis of ethylene oxide. Depending on the conditions, varying amounts of DI ETHYLENE GLYCOL (DEG) and related glycols are produced. The resulting product is two ethylene glycol molecules joined by an ether bond.
DI ETHYLENE GLYCOL (DEG) is derived as a co-product with ethylene glycol
Diethylene glycol is used in the manufacture of unsaturated polyester resins, polyurethanes, and plasticizers DEG is used as a building block in organic synthesis, e.g. of morpholine and 1,4-dioxane. It is a solvent for nitrocellulose, resins, dyes, oils, and other organic compounds. It is a humectant for tobacco, cork, printing ink, and glue
