Ethylene glycol is a versatile industrial compound used in a wide range of consumer and industrial products. You might not realize it, but it’s a key ingredient in many everyday items and essential applications. For instance, it’s the magic behind antifreeze and coolants, preventing your car’s engine from freezing in winter and helping it stay cool during the summer.

Beyond automotive uses, ethylene glycol is also found in hydraulic brake fluid, ballpoint pens, solvents, paints, plastics, wood treatments, and even films. In the natural gas industry, it’s utilized to remove water vapor from natural gas before further processing, similar to its cousin, Triethylene Glycol (TEG). Additionally, ethylene glycol is crucial in manufacturing polymers and fiberglass.
