Tri (Ethylene glycol) divinyl ether

​Triethylenglycol divinyl ether is a reactive diluent and comonomer for

  1. unsaturated polyesters,
  2. UV coatings, such as metal coil and can coatings as well as plastic coatings,
  3. UV inks, such as flexographic printing inks,
  4. UV adhesives & release coatings.

Triethylenglycol divinyl ether is also used as crosslinker for Polyacrylate polymers used as ion exchange resins and as building block for sulfur based sealant compounds.

Triethylenglycol divinyl ether provides low viscosity in UV-coatings, especially in cationic polymerization.Triethylenglycol divinyl ether is further used as intermediate in the following areas:
