The viscous glycol ether is an important industrial solvent. It is utilized in the manufacture of unsaturated polyesters, plasticizer and some important resins. It is a dyeing agent of gases. DEG is an effective softening agent, making glues and adhesives more flexible. It is an important component in formulations of brake fluids pastes and pigments.
