Ropella Industry Expertise

Glycols – especially ethylene glycol – play an important role in keeping your car running in extreme temperatures. When mixed with water, ethylene glycol works as an antifreeze to keep your engine from freezing in temperatures as low as -49 F; in the summer, it works as a coolant to help prevent overheating. (Bonus fact: Pure ethylene glycol has a freezing point of approximately 10 F; the mixture of this compound creates an anti-crystallization effect that significantly lowers the freezing point.)

Another common glycol is propylene glycol. This compound is common in food and personal care products, as it serves as an effective humectant, solvent, emulsifier, and preservative; it also has a slightly sweet taste, which adds to its appeal. It has been at the center of some controversy – when people disparagingly talk about ‘antifreeze’ being an ingredient in a product, they are often talking about propylene glycol. The mere fact that it can be utilized as an antifreeze, however, does not make propylene glycol inherently dangerous; in fact, it has a very low toxicity.
