MONO ETHYLENE GLYCOL (MEG) is a chemical product and Arena Petro Gas is in position to supply and export it directly from MAROON PETROCHEMICAL - SHAZAND PETROCHEMICAL through its trading services according to the following specification and technical properties.

Mono ethylene glycol (MEG) is an organic compound with the formula C2H6O2. It is a slightly viscous liquid with a clear, colourless appearance and a sweet taste that emits virtually no odour. It is mainly used as a raw material for the production of polyester fibres, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles, and antifreeze agents .

MEG is widely used in various industries, such as textile, packaging, automotive, aviation, and chemical. Some of the applications of MEG are:
  1. Textile: MEG is a key component for the synthesis of polyester fibres, which widely use for functional sports and casual wear. Polyester fibres have high strength, durability, and resistance to shrinking and wrinkling.
  2. Packaging: MEG is also a key component for the synthesis of polyethylene terephthalate (PET), which a thermoplastic polymer use for making bottles, containers, films, and trays. PET has excellent transparency, mechanical strength, and recyclability.
  3. Automotive: MEG use as an antifreeze agent for engine coolants, which prevent freezing and corrosion of the cooling system. MEG can also act as a lubricant for moving parts in the cooling system and as an additive for electrolytic polishing belts .
  4. Aviation: MEG is used as a de-icing and anti-icing agent for aircrafts, which prevent ice formation on the wings, fuselage, and other parts of the aircraft. MEG can lower the freezing point of water and also inhibit ice crystal growth.
  5. Chemical: MEG use as a solvent, plasticizer, humectant, and intermediate for various chemical reactions. For example, MEG can be used to produce unsaturated polyester resins, polyurethane systems, detergents, morpholine, and other organic compounds.
The technical specifications of MEG vary depending on the grade and the manufacturer. According to some sources , the technical specifications of MEG produced by Maroon Petrochemical Company (MPC), Shazand Petrochemical Company (SPC) are:

Mono Ethylene Glycol: A Versatile Compound for Industry and Beyond

Mono Ethylene Glycol 99%

Mono Ethylene Glycol (MEG), also known as 1,2-ethanediol, is a vital organic compound with the chemical formula C₂H₆O₂. This odorless, colorless liquid has a syrupy consistency and a sweet taste. MEG plays a crucial role in various applications due to its unique properties.

Production and Properties

MEG is primarily produced from ethylene, which undergoes a two-step reaction process. First, ethylene reacts with oxygen to form ethylene oxide. Next, ethylene oxide reacts with water to yield MEG: [ \text{C₂H₄O} + \text{H₂O} \rightarrow \text{HOCH₂CH₂OH} ]. This reaction can occur under acidic, neutral, or basic conditions, with the highest yields achieved under acidic or neutral PH. MEG is typically synthesized to a high level of purity (99%) 1.

Applications of Mono Ethylene Glycol

1. Chemical Intermediates for Resins

  • Polyester Resins: MEG serves as a raw material for polyester fibers, containers, and films.
  • Resin Esters: Used as plasticizers in adhesives, lacquers, and enamels.
  • Alkyd-Type Resins: Found in synthetic rubbers, adhesives, and surface coatings.

2. Solvent Coupler and Stabilizer

  • MEG acts as a solvent coupler and stabilizer against gel formation.

3. Freezing Point Depression and Deicing Fluids

  • In antifreeze formulations, MEG lowers the freezing point of water, making it effective for deicing fluids.
  • Used in heat transfer fluids for gas compressors, HVAC systems, and ice rinks.

4. Humectant and Textile Applications

  • MEG maintains moisture in textile fibers, paper, and leather.
  • It is also used in adhesives and glue.

5. Chemical Intermediate

  • MEG serves as a solvent in various applications.
