Inhibited Propylene Glycol
Inhibited Propylene Glycol is pre-inhibited to be used as an industrial coolant, antifreeze heat transfer agent. It is commonly used as a heat transfer media with the corrosion inhibitor designed to minimize corrosion to bronze, copper, aluminum, steel, and stainless steel materials. It is specially designed for antifreeze or boiler applications providing freeze protection and corrosion protect against iron, aluminum, and bronze metals. Using Inhibited Propylene Glycol for heat transfer applications instead of brine solutions or uninhibited propylene glycol reduces maintenance costs and thereby improves heat transfer efficiency.
With its unique combination of properties propylene glycol supports many uses. It serves as a solvent; Connects and stabilises insoluble fluids (emulsifier); Helps to bind and transport other substances (excipient); Holds and dissolves active ingredients equally in a medium; Attracts/holds water/moisture (hygroscopic); Reduces freezing point, increases boiling point; Chemically inert.
Propylene Glycol has been classified as “generally recognized as safe,” and acceptable for use in food and beverage processing, drugs and pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and as direct food additive. The World Health Organization accepts dietary intake of Propylene Glycol up to 25mg/kg body weight

Proper human safety products such as splash goggles, lab coat, NIOSH approved gloves and boots should be worn while handling and applying chemicals. Splashes on the skin should be washed off with water immediately. In case of splashing into the eyes, flush them with fresh water and obtain medical attention. Should not be injected.
Hygroscopic nature should be stored in original vented containers, away from moisture contamination, heat, direct sunlight and combustibles. Opened drums must be closed immediately after withdrawal of the product. Store in a cool and dry place. Please refer label and SDS for details.
