industrial grade (99.5% minimum purity); antifreeze grade (98% minimum purity); and fiber grade (99.8% minimum purity).
Ethylene Glycol is mainly employed in the production of PET bottle-grade resins and polyesters fibers, used, in turn, in the manufacture of textiles, tire cords, video tapes, and soft drink and water containers. For such applications, Fiber Grade Ethylene Glycol is used, since high purity feedstock is necessary. Ethylene Glycol is also used as base compound of antifreeze/coolant formulations. It is employed in automobile radiators, solar energy units, heat pumps, water heating systems, and industrial cooling systems. Other applications of Ethylene Glycol are as humectant, plasticizer, softener, hydraulic fluid, and solvent.

Ethylene Glycol (a.k.a. Monoethylene Glycol, MEG) is an organic compound, more specifically a diol (a chemical compound that contains two hydroxyl groups). It is a colorless, practically odorless, with low viscosity, hygroscopic liquid at room temperature. It is in fact the simplest diol and a major chemical commodity that, like other glycols, undergoes reactions common to monohydric alcohols forming esters, acetals, ethers, and similar products.
