Diethylene Glycol (DEG) Introduction

Diethylene Glycol (DEG) is a sweet-tasting colorless, odorless, clear chemical compound product in the form of liquid that is used widely in the chemical and petrochemical industry around the world.

Diethylene Glycol (DEG) has the chemical formula of C4H10O3, composed of four Carbon atoms, ten Hydrogen atoms, and three Oxygen atoms.

Diethylene Glycol (DEG) is soluble in water and many other organic compounds and is also known by the names Diglycol, and DEG 2,2-Oxydiethanol.

Diethylene Glycol (DEG) is manufactured from Mono Ethylene Glycol (MEG) and is a by-product of the reaction that produces Mono Ethylene Glycol (MEG).

From the chemical reaction between the oxidation of Ethylene with water at very high temperatures with the presence of Silver Oxide as the catalyst, Mono Ethylene Glycol (MEG) and Diethylene Glycol (DEG) are produced.

Diethylene Glycol (MEG) is a toxic and hazardous liquid and workers must be trained and wear appropriate personal protective equipment when working with the Diethylene Glycol (MEG) product.


Diethylene Glycol (DEG) Uses

Diethylene Glycol (DEG) is one of the most useful products in the world that has many uses and applications in the chemical and petrochemical industry.

One of the main uses of Diethylene Glycol (DEG) is as the intermediate product for in manufacturing of unsaturated polyester resins, plasticizers, acrylate, methacrylate resins, and urethane.

In the tobacco industry, Diethylene Glycol (DEG) is used as a humectant in tobacco products for controlling the moisture of the tobacco filler.

This compound chemical toxic liquid is used in the treatment of papers, corks, glues, and cellphones, also one of the very useful applications of Diethylene Glycol (DEG) is in the removal of water from the gas in the gas industry.

The other major uses and applications of Diethylene Glycol (DEG) are cement grinding, and petroleum solvent extraction also found in the printing ink and drywall joint compounds.

Other important uses and applications of Diethylene Glycol (DEG) are antifreeze, brake fluids, cosmetics, lubricants, and other commercially used products.


Diethylene Glycol (DEG) Packing

Diethylene Glycol (DEG) is a toxic, viscous, and hazardous liquid that must be stored in a very safe and secure environment, direct from direct sunlight and radiation.

Diethylene Glycol (DEG) can be stored in stainless steel, aluminum, Plastic drums, tanks cars, or tank trucks and IBC tanks.


Diethylene Glycol (DEG) Transportation
