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