GLYCOL ETHER EB DOW, Technical Grade, Liquid, Drum

Offering nationwide distribution of Glycol Ether EB

Glycol Ether EB is a clear liquid with mild, pleasant odors.  Due to the presence of both an ether and a hydroxyl group in the same molecule, these products are miscible in water, as well as most organic solvents.  Ethylene glycol ethers and acetates are used in paint and coatings, hard-surface cleaners, polishes, solvents, chemical intermediates, surfactants, agricultural chemicals and corrosion inhibitors.  They are also used in the electronics market.

With more than 120 locations and our own fleet of trucks and railcars, we can cover your Glycol Ether EB needs offering you proven reliability and quality service at every touchpoint.
