Texol DEG

Diethylene Glycol / DEG

Diethylene glycol (DEG) is a colorless, low-volatility, low viscosity, hygroscopic liquid. Under normal conditions, diethylene glycol has no detectable odor; however, under high vapor concentrations, a slightly sweet odor may be detected.

Texol MEG

Monoethylene Glycol / MEG

Monoethylene glycol is a colorless, odorless, and slightly viscous liquid and miscible with water in all proportions. This grade is used where high purity is required. Ethylene glycol is produced from ethylene, via the internediate ethylene oxide. Ethylene oxide reacts with water to produce ethylene glycol according to the chemical equation

  • Polyester resins (fibers, containers and films)
  • Resin esters as plasticizers (adhesives, lacquers and enamels)
  • Alkyd-type resins (synthetic rubbers, adhesives, surface coatings)
  • Stabilizer against gel formation
  • Freezing point depression
  • Deicing fluids (aircraft, runway)
  • Heat transfer fluids (gas compressors, heating, ventilating, air conditioning, process chillers)
  • All-weather automotive antifreeze and coolants
  • Water-based formulations (adhesives, latex paints, asphalt emulsions)
  • Medium for suspending conductive salt in electrolytic capacitors
  • Textile fibers
  • Paper

Monopropylene Glycol / MPG

MPG is the US Pharmacopoeia compliant grade of monopropylene glycol. It is a clear. Colourless and practically odourless, hygroscopic liquid, completely soluble in water. MPG ( USP Grade ) is used in a wide range of applications in the pharmaceutical industry, the food industry, tobacco industry and in cosmetics.

    Texol markets two grades of MPG to meet the requirements of the various applications.
  • USP Grade:Solvent in the flavor concentrate and fragrance industry, an excipient in elixirs and pharmaceuticals, and a coupling agent in sunscreens,shampoos, shaving creams and other personal care products Wetting agent for natural gums to simplify compounding Humectant, preservative and stabilizer in diverse applications like baked goods, flavorings, salad dressings, shave creams, pet food (except cat food)
  • Industrial Grade: Raw material to produce high-performance unsaturated polyester resins (UPR) used for marine construction, gel coats, sheet molding compounds and synthetic marble castings Chemical intermediate in the production of resins for paints and varnishes Solutions with water to make antifreeze, heat-transfer fluids and aircraft and runway deicing fluids
