Triethylene Glycol (TEG) is produced as a byproduct in the manufacture of MEG. TEG is a colourless liquid with a high boiling point. It is most hygroscopic in nature, amongst Mono & Diethylene Glycols. TEG is miscible with water, alcohol, ether, acetone but is insoluble in benzene and it is homologous. TEG is a stable non corrosive chemical with a high flash point.

TEG finds end use in Natural Gas Dehydration, Plasticizers, Conditioning agents etc. At normal temperature and pressure, TEG can be easily transported in Mild steel tankers, internally coated with an epoxy paint. Similarly, TEG can be stored in MS containers lined with baked phenolic resin / air drying epoxy phenolic resin or vinyl resin. It is advisable to store TEG in a cool, dry place with good ventilation - away from heat, sparks or flames. Care should be taken to prevent TEG from mixing with strong acids, bases and oxidising materials.  

Triethylene Glycol (TEG) is a straight-chain dihydric alcohol aliphatic compound terminated on both ends by a hydroxyl group. It is a clear, practically colorless and odorless, hygroscopic liquid at room temperature.

Applications

  • Unsaturated polyester resins
  • Lubricant and coupling agents
  • Humectants and dehydrating agents
  • Polyester polyols
  • Plasticizers
  • Solvents

Triethylene glycol is used as a dehydrating agent for natural gas, a solvent and lubricant in textile dyeing and printing, a plasticizer, a raw material for the production of polyester resins and polyols, a humectant, a constituent of hydraulic fluids, a selective solvent for aromatics.
