Chemical Description

  • Triethylene Glycol is a colorless or pale yellow liquid.
  • It is miscible with water, alcohol, benzene, and toluene and slightly soluble in gasoline.
  • It is used in gas chromatography stationary liquid, such as for the analysis of oxygenated compounds.
  • It is also used as a solvent for nitrocellulose, rubber, resin, grease, paint,
  • Triethylene glycol plasticizer for polyvinyl chloride, polyvinyl acetate resin, glass fiber and asbestos pressed board, etc.
  • It is used as a tobacco anti-drying agent, fiber lubricant, and natural gas desiccant.
  • It is also used in organic syntheses, such as the production of brake fluid with a high boiling point and good low-temperature performance.
  • TEG is widely used in the natural gas industry to remove water from natural gas. This process is crucial to prevent the formation of hydrates and corrosion in pipelines.
  • It serves as a desiccant in air conditioning systems and dehumidifiers, helping to maintain low moisture levels in the air.
  • TEG is used as a plasticizer in the production of vinyl polymers and other plastics. This helps improve the flexibility and durability of the finished products.
  • In cosmetics and personal care products, it acts as a humectant, helping to retain moisture in products like lotions, creams, and hair care items.
  • TEG is used in antifreeze and coolant formulations for its low volatility and effectiveness in preventing freezing and overheating in engines.
  • It is a common ingredient in the fluids used in smoke and fog machines for theatrical productions and fire training exercises because of its ability to produce dense, long-lasting fog.
  • It exhibits antimicrobial properties, making it useful in some cleaning and sanitizing formulations, as well as in preserving certain materials.
  • TEG is a component in certain lubricants and hydraulic fluids, contributing to their performance and stability.
  • It is used as an intermediate in the synthesis of various chemicals, including polyester resins, plasticizers, and synthetic lubricants.
  • It is available in 230 Kg drums and 23500 Kg Flex tank.
