Substance Name: 1,2-Ethanediol, polyethylene terephthalate manufg. purifn. residues
RN: 68911-06-8

Note

  • TSCA Definition 2018: The residuum from ethylene glycol purification from polyester manufacture, processing, or recycle. It may contain 1,2-ethanediol, open-chain and cyclic 1,2-ethanediol condensates, bis(2-hydroxyethyl)-1,4-benzenedicarboxylate and open-chain and cyclic oxy-1,2-ethanediyloxycarbonyl-1,4-phenylenecarbonyl condensates. The polyester condensates are characterized by alternating oxy-1,2-ethanediyl and oxycarbonyl-1,4-phenylenecarbonyl substructures and are principally poly(oxy-1,2-ethanediyloxycarbonyl-1,4-phenylenecarbonyl).
