Glysofor ELM


Glysofor ELM is a high-purity monoethylene glycol, which is available in any concentration. The product is used for applications which require extremely low electrical conductivity.

Glysofor ELM can be delivered as a concentrated high-purity product or as an aqueous solution. The solutions are manufactured using high-purity water with an electrical conductivity < 0.1μs/cm.

Specific electrical resistance at 20 °C (M ohm cm) min. 10
Specific electrical conductivity at 20 °C (μs/cm) max. 0,1
Permittivity approx. 40

Glysofor ELM optimally prevents frost damage, deposits, sludge accumulation, and biofilms in water circuits. Both as a concentrate and diluted with water, the product is classed in the lowest water hazard class WHC 1. It exhibits longterm resistance to the formation of biofilms, rot, and microbiological decomposition. Glysofor ELM can be mixed in any ratio with water, ethanol, butanol, butyl acetate, and acetone. We supply high-purity water with an electrical conductivity < 0.1μs/cm for you to make subsequent adjustments.


Glysofor ELM significantly reduces the freezing point of water, thereby preventing freezing in water circuits and cooling systems.

With Glysofor ELM, water circuits can be temporarily switched off, even during frost conditions, while however remaining ready for operation at any time. Homogeneous mixed aqueous solutions do not separate when the system is shut down.
