Glycerol, also known as glycerol, is a colorless, sweet, clear, and viscous liquid. Odorless, with a warm and sweet taste. It can absorb moisture from the air, as well as hydrogen sulfide, hydrogen cyanide, and sulfur dioxide. Neutral to litmus. Long term exposure to a low temperature of 0 ℃ can form shiny rhombic crystals with a melting point of 17.8 ℃.
Glycerol is the backbone component of triglyceride molecules. When the human body ingests edible fat, the triglycerides in it undergo metabolic decomposition in the body to form glycerol and store it in fat cells. Therefore, the end products of triglyceride metabolism are glycerol and fatty acids. So what are the applications of glycerol in the chemical and light industries? The following potassium hydroxide manufacturer will analyze for you:
1. Glycerin can be used in the resin industry to manufacture ester gum, which is also called glycerol trisrosin ester or rosin gum. It can be esterified with glycerol and 8.5~10.5 parts of rosin between 230~290 ℃ to obtain ester gum that is harder, closer to neutral, and more water resistant than the original rosin. It has a wide range of industrial applications.
2. Used in the paint industry to produce various alkyd resins, polyester resins, glycidyl ethers, and epoxy resins. Alkyd resin made from glycerol as a raw material is a good coating that can replace quick drying paint and enamel, and has good insulation performance, which can be applied to electrical materials.
3. Glycerin can be used as humectant, viscosity reducer, denaturant, etc. in cosmetics, so it is widely used in cosmetics (such as face cream, facial mask, facial cleanser, etc.). Skincare products using glycerol ingredients can keep the skin soft, elastic, and dry from dust, climate, and other damage, playing a moisturizing and moisturizing role.
4. Glycerin is widely used in the production of cellophane as a plasticizer to give cellophane the necessary softness and prevent cellophane from breaking. Used in the paper industry for wrinkled paper, thin paper, waterproof paper, and waxed paper.
5. In the textile industry, glycerol is used as a lubricant for spinning and weaving because it can completely dissolve in water and is easily washed off on fibers. When glycerol is used in the printing and dyeing industry, it helps to improve the penetration and uniformity of dyeing, with a general dosage of 5%. Derivatives of composite glycerol can be used as detergents, penetrating agents, and emulsifiers.
6. Glycerin is mainly used as a plasticizer in photography to prevent film cracking and shrinkage.
7. Rubber products stored in glycerol can be stored for a much longer time than when exposed to air. Glycerin is used as a vulcanizing medium and lubricant in the rubber industry.
That's all for the application of glycerol (glycerol) in the chemical and light industries. We hope to provide you with good help. For more product information, please visit our website http://www.tmgwork.com consulting service
