Propylene Glycol(PG) is a derivative of propylene oxide (PO) and is produced in a two-step process. The first step is the reaction of PO with water into a mixture of Monopropylene glycol and Dipropylene glycol and the second step is the distillation and purification of the mixture into its two separate components (Mono- and Dipropylene glycol).
PG is a colorless, viscous, and odorless liquid. It is highly hygroscopic and miscible in all ratios with water, alcohols, esters, ketones, and amines. It has limited miscibility with halogenated hydrocarbons and is not miscible with aliphatic hydrocarbons. PG absorbs water and it is mainly used to make polyester compounds. It is also used in food, pharmaceutical, and chemical industries as an anti-freeze. It is mainly used to soak extra water and maintain the moisture content in cosmetics, food products, and medicines.
PG is also used for creating artificial fog and is also used in paints and plastic industries. Contact us today to know more about this solvent and get your quote today.
