Eastman NPG glycol

Eastman invented Eastman NPG™ glycol in the 1950s, and its market share continues to grow to this day. Eastman offers the broadest portfolio and global supply of high-performance monomer intermediates for resins, as well as additives, inhibitors, and copromoters.

Eastman NPG™ is available in two forms: as white, waxy platelets or molten. A slurry of 90 percent by weight with water is available, and designated Eastman NPG™ 90.

Formulators and purchasers of intermediates for resins continue to find Eastman NPG™ glycol useful in new applications and new markets.

Applications where Eastman NPG™ glycol is useful are:

  • Production of diesters and polyesters, where it provides fast processing, excellent stability, low color, good resistance to chemicals and weathering, and improved electrical, thermal, and hydrolytic stability
  • Unsaturated polyester gel coats for marine applications and bathroom tubs, sinks, and toilets, where Eastman NPG™ imparts low color, excellent weathering, and hydrolytic stability
  • Fiberglass-reinforced greenhouses and similar structures
  • Halogenated, flame-retardant polyesters
  • Saturated, reactive polyesters based on Eastman NPG™ combined with melamine resins to produce premium-quality heat-curable enamels for coil coating or spray applications
  • Rigid and flexible polyurethane foams
