Propylene glycol

Count on us for your Propylene glycol needs

Propylene glycol is an odorless, colorless, hygroscopic liquid. It is fully hygroscopic and miscible with water, alcohols, esters, ketones, and amines, but exhibits limited miscibility with hydrocarbons. The industrial-grade is used in resin manufacturing (especially UPR), as well as paints and coatings, de-icing, antifreeze, detergents, and brake fluids. The USP grade meets strict quality and handling standards so is appropriate for applications such as cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and food.
