Usage

Today, monoethylene glycol is mainly used for the production of polyester fibres and polyethylene terephthalate (PET). Most radiator antifreeze for internal combustion engines and many heat transfer fluids are based on monoethylene glycol. This also applies to our Frigutec® engine coolant products. In addition, monoethylene glycol is also used in natural gas production. Other areas of application are: Textile treatment products, dyes, laboratory chemicals, detergents and cleaners, polishes, adhesives and sealants, hydraulic fluids, resins, and many more.
