Diols: OG/2-Ethyl-1,3-Hexanediol

Features of OG

OG has primary and secondary hydroxy groups and bulky side chains. OG is a very unique diol which balances hydrophilicity and hydrophobicity. OG has good compatibility with hydrophobic materials like polybutadienepolyol. OG also has a low viscosity so that it can be used as a reactive diluent in polyurethane and epoxy formulations.
