CAS NUMBER: 107-21-1

SYNONYMS: Ethylene Glycol, Ethane-1,2-diol, 1,2-Ethanediol

Mono Ethylene Glycol, MEG is an organic compound with the formula (CH2OH)2. It is mainly used for two purposes, as a raw material in the manufacture of polyester fibers and for antifreeze formulations. It is an odorless, colorless, sweet-tasting, viscous liquid.


Common Applications of MEG:

  • Polyester resins (fibers, containers and films)
  • Resin esters as plasticizers (adhesives, lacquers and enamels)
  • Alkyd-type resins (synthetic rubbers, adhesives, surface coatings)
  • Heat transfer fluids (gas compressors, heating, ventilating, air conditioning, process chillers, ice rinks)
  • Automotive antifreeze and coolants
  • Freezing Point Depression
  • Deicing fluids
  • Water-based formulations (adhesives, latex paints, asphalt emulsions)

Packaging: Bulk, Drum, IBC
