Ethylene Dichloride
C2H4Cl2
97-99% (pure, containing about 0.1% wt% of alkylamines to inhibit decomposition)
Ethylene Dichloride is mainly employed in the production of vinyl chloride monomer (VCM), used in turn in the production of PVC homopolymer and copolymers. PVC is one of the main synthetic plastic polymers, widely used in a range of applications, including construction, consumer goods, packaging, electrical fittings and wire and cable coatings, among others. To a lesser extent, EDC is used in the production of ethylene amines and chlorinated solvents. Other applications are as solvent, scavenging component and storage fumigant.

Ethylene Dichloride (a.k.a. EDC, 1,2-Dichloroethane, DCE) is the most produced chlorinated hydrocarbon by a wide margin. It is a colorless liquid with an odor that resembles chloroform. It is mainly used to produce vinyl chloride monomer (VCM), starting material in the production polyvinyl chloride (PVC), one of the highest commercialized plastic polymers worldwide.
