Industrial

Unsaturated Polyester Resins end use markets include:

  • Residential and commercial construction (building panels, bathroom components, fixtures, corrosion resistant tanks, ducts etc.)
  • Marine transportation (boats)
  • Passenger cars, trucks and recreational vehicles
  • Consumer appliances

Non reinforced saturated polyester resins are used for synthetic marble, auto body repair, mine bolt anchor resins, coatings adhesives etc.

Coolants and Antifreeze

A functional fluid, propylene glycol Industrial Grade (PGI) serves in aircraft deicing and anti-icing fluids, antifreeze, engine coolants, heat transfer fluids offering benefits including:

  • Biodegradability
  • Excellent heat transfer properties
  • Low freezing point
  • The ability to decrease the freezing point of water
  • Low flammability
  • A high boiling point, low vapor pressure

Paint and Coatings

Water-based architectural coatings incorporate propylene glycol because it is fully miscible with water and improves application properties by adjusting drying time and aiding in the freeze/thaw characteristics.

Liquid Detergents

Propylene glycol serves as a solvent, enzyme stabilizer clarifying agent and diluent in liquid detergents.
