Summary

Table of Contents

Glycol ethers form a varied family of more than 30 solvents. All these glycol ethers have different properties – and are therefore fit for different uses. Traditionally, a distinction is made between two main groups of glycol ethers: E series and P series, depending on whether they are made from ethylene or propylene. In each group, different derivatives have been developed to provide the properties of solubility, volatility, compatibility and inflammability required for the applications.

Glycol Ethers, commonly referred to as thickeners or viscosifiers, are ever-present in most products to provide specific functionality to the product. Rheological modifiers are the key components in paints & coatings as they reduce dripping and spattering of fluid during roller or brush application. It provides high viscosity at low shear rates that is useful during drilling high-angle and horizontal wells fand it also prevents sag and settling of weighting material. Glycol ethers prevent sedimentation of pigments within a formulation and ensure consistency and durability of the fluid.

The global glycol ethers market is evaluated based on different types such as propylene glycol ethers, ethylene glycol ethers and others. The major applications of glycol ethers are in pharmaceuticals, paints & coatings, adhesives, cleaning fluids and more. The report also focuses on different geographic regions and the key countries in terms of changing trends in using glycol ethers in various fields.
