Propylene Glycol Ethers

Paint

Propylene glycol ethers are formed from the base catalyzed reaction of propylene oxide with alcohols like methanol, ethanol, propanol, butanol or phenol. Subsequent reaction with additional propylene oxide leads to the corresponding di-, tri- and higher glycol ethers.

Propylene glycol ethers are commonly used as solvents and coupling agents in paints and in the production of coatings, inks, resins, and cleaners.
