Glycol ether and glycol ether ester products are the oxygen activity products, mainly the low carbon glycol ether of propylene glycol and ethylene glycol. Making glycol ether products and acetic acid to the esterification reaction can produce glycol ether ester products.
Glycol Ethers Products:
The development of glycol ether and glycol ether ester in China started in the middle of 1990s when the production of ethylene glycol ether was mainly focused, and the enterprises were mainly concentrated in Sunan area of Jiangsu province. Then, under the leading of global alcohol ether product manufacturers of dow chemical and domestic scientific research institutions, domestic enterprises gradually began to produce those propylene glycol ether and alcohol ether ester products that have lower toxicity, physical and chemical properties similar to ethylene alcohol ether.
Ethylene glycol ether and its esters are important derivatives of ethylene oxide and are another important series of products of binary alcohol ether. Ethylene glycol ether and alcohol ether ester products are widely used in coatings, printing and dyeing, resins, leather, printing, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, and other industries as industrial solvents or raw materials, can also be used as metal and glass cleaning agents.
Propylene glycol methyl ether and propylene glycol methyl ether acetate are the varieties that of a higher share in the market are used a lot. It can mix with water, alcohols, ketones, ethers, aromatics and fatty hydrocarbon miscibility, and can dissolve many model polymer. Therefore, propylene glycol ether and propylene glycol ether ester can be used in environmental protection coatings, ink, cleaning agents and detergents and other high-end downstream industries, also can be used as antifreeze, extraction agents and other organic synthetic materials.
