Propylene glycol is a viscous compound and it is colorless liquid with odorless but possesses a faintly sweet taste. Polypropylene glycol is a main constituent in the manufacture of polymers. Propylene glycol are, 1,2-propanediol, methyl glycol, 1,2-dihydroxypropane and trimethyl glycol. Propylene glycol is, slightly syrupy liquid at room temperature. It may exist in air in the vapor form, although propylene glycol must be briskly shaken or heated to produce a vapor. Propylene glycol is practically tasteless and odorless.
Global Propylene Glycol Market Dynamics
- Usage in Transportation Industry
Propylene glycol is used in hydraulic fluids and fire-resistant brake as a coolant in the transportation sector for engine cooling, as a raw material for de-icing planes, and as a heat transfer fluid for high-temperature applications.
