Production detail:

Mono Ethylene glycol, abbreviated as MEG, is also called Ethane-1,2-diol. It is a natural compound, a viscous liquid and has the formula (CH2OH)2. Even though MEG does not have any smell or color, it does have a sweet taste. The sweet-tasting compound is used as a raw material in producing polyester fibers and as an antifreeze force.

CAS No.: 107-21-1

Synonym: MEG, Mono Ethylene glycol

Uses/applications: MEG – is a vital ingredient for the production of polyester fibers and film, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resins and engine coolants. End uses for MEG range from clothing and other textiles, through packaging to kitchenware, engine coolants and antifreeze. Polyester and fleece fabrics, upholstery, carpets and pillows, as well as light and sturdy polyethylene terephthalate drink and food containers originate from ethylene glycol. The humectant (water attracting) properties of MEG products also make them ideal for use in fibers treatment, paper, adhesives, printing inks, leather and cellophane.
