Because this material is cheaply available, it finds many niche applications. B    L    This prevents the formation of ice crystals and in turn lowers the freezing point of water. 1847 0 obj <> endobj xref 1847 29 0000000016 00000 n Diethylene glycol (DEG) is used in a wide range of industrial applications. 58 / Monday, March 26, 2012 / Rules and Regulations Revision date: 03/30/2016 03/30/2016 EN (English) Page 1 SECTION 1: Identification of the substance/mixture and of the company/undertaking 1.1. U    0000008725 00000 n G    It is mainly used for two purposes, as a raw material in the manufacture of polyester fibers and for antifreeze formulations. 0000010476 00000 n R    Product identifier Product form : Substance With fine particle silicas above about 20phr, diethylene glycol (DEG) or polyethylene glycol (DEG) reduces accelerator requirements. 100 mL is lethal; rapid treatment can prevent damage. DEG is used as a component of multiple different products including antifreeze preparations, cosmetics, lubricants, brake fluids, wallpaper strippers, heating/cooling fuel and as a plasticizer. Ethylene glycol is highly poisonous; animals or humans that drink the solution become very ill and may die. Diethylene Glycol Safety Data Sheet according to Federal Register / Vol. It is used as a deactivator for formulations used before the crop emerges from the soil and as a stabilizer. %PDF-1.4 %���� Z, Copyright © 2020 Corrosionpedia Inc. - h�b```b``y������� ̀ �l�,;����A��I�D40pl�} �&ͥ�B�[�G�a�O7���כ����-?�~��[Ӄ� ���/X ė�(^!���B� ���ag&3ı/ibWl�H�Hl�Hl�H�!3̀�`��$��?7díP�]��Rl=7 ��.

Diethylene glycol (DEG) refers to an organic chemical compound with the chemical formula (HOCH2CH2)2O. 0000197465 00000 n 0000013360 00000 n ApplicationsUsed in a variety of cleaning applications such as household cleaners, industrial cleaners, laundry prewash stain. Diethylene Glycol The characteristics of MEGlobal’s diethylene glycol (DEG) products supplement our monoethyleneglycol (MEG) portfolio, augmenting our capabilities to include applications that require hygroscopicity, lubricants and low volatility. n = 0 ethylene glycol ("antifreeze") ; n = 1 DEG n = 2 triethylene glycol, TEG, or triglycol is also a colorless odourless viscous liquid. 0000002126 00000 n 0000008422 00000 n #    Diethylene glycol is used as a dehydrating agent for natural gas, a raw material for the production of plasticizers and polyester resin, and a widely used solvent. 0000002807 00000 n S    The glycols also buffer the variable moisture and are an economic advantage. Its ability to lower the freezing point of water is also useful in vitrifica… A 1:1 solution of ethylene glycol and water boils at 129 °C (264.2 °F) and freezes at −37 °C (−34.6 °F), serving as an excellent coolant in automotive radiators.
