Di Propylene Gylcol FR/ Technical Grade

Di Propylene Gylcol FR/ Technical Grade

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

Usage:
The main commercial uses for regular grade dipropylene glycol are:

  • Chemical intermediate in the manufacture of highperformance, unsaturated polyester resins, polyurethanes, and plasticizers
  • Hydraulic brake-fluid formulations
  • Cutting-oil formulations
  • Textile lubricants
  • Coatings, paints
  • Industrial soaps
  • Solvents for agricultural chemicals, insecticides, and inks
  • Latex paint formulations, for freeze/thaw protection
