DEGEE or Diethylene glycol monomethyl ether is a specific product, which is derived from the ethylene oxide and methanol. Commercially, it is identified as methyl carbitol. DEGEE is an excellent solvent for use in resins and pastes. It is a non-volatile solvent and is therefore only used in special varnishes. DEGEE is generally used in personal care and pharmaceutical products. It is used as a solvent in topical, oral and transdermal pharmaceuticals for humans and animals. DEGEE is also widely used as a solvent in huge range of cleaning fluids, coatings, paints, and inks. The application of DEGEE has increased as a flow & gloss promoter in paint industries. It provides greater versatility, biodegradability and cost efficiency, which further boosting the market growth. Additionally, rising awareness regarding the use of environment-friendly products coupled with significant investments in the development of safe & effective pharmaceutical and personal care products, has increased the demand for diethylene glycol monoethyl ether worldwide.
Diethylene glycol monoethyl ether is also used as antifreeze in aviation fuel, contributing to its development in the aerospace industry. Demand from the textile industry has increased due to its increasing use as a binder and solvent for printing and dyeing fabrics. Some other uses for diethylene glycol monoethyl ether include as an inactivator & stabilizer for pesticides, liquid detergents & cleaning compositions, and piercing & cutting coolants.
