Diethylene glycol (DEG) is a valuable chemical intermediate used in the production of unsaturated polyester resins (UPR), plasticizers, acrylate and methacrylate resins and urethanes.

Ethylene glycols are used as a reactant in the manufacture of polyester resins. Diethylene glycols for use in polyester fiber, films and polyethylene terephthalate (PET) resin production, as well as alkyd resins used in paints. The uses for polyester resins are extremely varied, and include boat and marine, construction materials, automotive and aircraft bodies, luggage, furnishings, appliances, textiles and packaging.

Polyester fibers are commonly found in textile applications including clothing and carpets.

Polyester films are frequently used in packaging and wraps for consumer goods, as well as video, audio and computer tapes. PET is widely used in the manufacturing of beverage bottles and containers, and other consumer goods packaging.
