Usage

Industrial, Laboratory

Dipropylene Glycol (DPG) is used as a reactive intermediate in the manufacture of high-performance unsaturated polyester resins, polyurethanes and plasticizers. DPG has great solvency, a low evaporation rate, low toxicity, high viscosity and low odor, making it a chemical intermediate of choice for many applications

Other Detail:

  • High-volume plasticizer
  • Reactant in unsaturated polyurethane resins, adding flexibility and hydrolytic stability
  • Initiator in urethane polyols, and as the polyol itself in some rigid polyurethane systems
  • Reactive diluents in radiation-cured resins and coatings, cutting viscosity and enabling easier application
  • Other effective uses of DPG are:
  • Hydraulic brake fluid formulations
  • Cutting oils
  • Textile lubricants
  • Printing inks
  • Coatings
  • Industrial soaps
  • Solvents for agricultural chemicals such as insecticides
  • Dyes industries
  • Pigments industry
  • Flavors & fragrances.
  • Glycols such as Propylene glycol (PGI), and Dipropylene Glycol (DPG) can be used as:
  • Initiators for urethane polyol synthesis from epoxides
  • The polyol itself in some polyurethane foam systems
  • A component for polyurethane/urea elastomers

Paint and Coatings:

Adhesives, Sealants and Coatings:

  • The full range of propylene glycols are used in the synthesis of alkyd resins found in paints, enamels and varnishes.
  • DPG are used as compatibilizers and for freeze-thaw protection in latex-based paint formulations.
  • DPG are used as resin solvents in the production of printing inks.

Alkyd Resins for Paint and Coatings:

  • PGI is used as an intermediate in the production of alkyd resins for paints and varnishes. It controls flexibility and hardness.

Latex Paints:

  • Propylene glycols (PGI, DPG and TPG) are used in latex-based architectural paints to provide freeze and thaw stability. They also enhance the quality of the final film by changing the open time and providing leveling during application.

UV-Curable Resins:

  • UV-curable (or Radiation Cure) resins are used in printing inks, varnishes, paints and coating applications.

These resins offer several advantages, including:

  • Increased energy efficiency
  • No post curing
  • Low volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions
  • Fast processing speeds
  • Compact plant size
