- Glycol ethers are a group of solvents based on alkyl ethers of ethylene glycol commonly used in paints. These solvents typically have a higher boiling point, together with the favorable solvent properties of lower molecular weight of ethers and alcohols.
- The glycol ether gives the composition the ability to penetrate into the cracks between two seized or corroded elements and dissolve any rust or corrosion parts.
- A penetrating and lubricating composition consisting of a silicone lubricant dissolved in a glycol ether carrier having a very low surface tension.
- Grignard reagents prepared in the presence of diethylene glycol dibutyl ether have improved yields and stability, including storage stability, at room temperature.
