2-Methyl-1,3-Propanediol (MP Diol)

CAS # 2163-42-0

DESCRIPTION

2-Methyl-1,3-propanediol is a colorless, low viscosity, low order of toxicity liquid with a unique molecular structure: a branched aliphatic diol with two primary hydroxyls. This structure inhibits the crystallization of 2-methyl-1,3-propanediol Glycol allowing it to remain liquid even in cold temperature. The main applications are the manufacture of unsaturated polyester resin, saturated polyester, alkyd resin, polyurethane, plasticizer, 2-Methyl-propylene glycol diacrylate, 2-Methyl-propylene glycol alkoxylate diacrylate, 2-Methyl-propylene glycol alkoxylate, polyester polyol, modified PET for fiber and bottle, and personal care.
