Industrial propylene glycol

Reliable processing – the backbone of industry

Industrial propylene glycol is used as a heat transfer medium, to control viscosity, to dissolve active agents or protect against corrosion and pressure burst. It is also used as raw material for the production of unsaturated polyester resins (UPR).

Propylene glycol in wind turbine blades

Industrial propylene glycol can be used:

  • as aircraft de-icer, enabling safe global public transport
  • in paints and coatings, providing sustainable weather and wear protection
  • in liquid detergents, supporting hygienic conditions
  • as a basic building block in the production of other formable plastics such as unsaturated polyester resins (UPR) used e.g. in furniture, heavy-impact surfaces (floors, kitchen, bathroom) or wind turbine blades.

Industrial propylene glycol helps other products fulfil their function longer and better, and is therefore often chosen as the best solution; it makes a significant contribution to many industrial processes around the world.
