Products > Corn Glycol

Corn glycol is a specially made glycol for solar thermal applications. This special solar glycol is designed to enhance the life span and performance of your solar thermal system.

The formula includes everything needed for a perfect solar glycol - corrosion and rust inhibitors, high temperature tolerances, and excellent freeze protection. It also has lower surface tension, making it "wetter" - or flow easier through the pipes in your solar thermal system.

Corn glycol has the same chemical properties as propylene glycol – it's non-toxic, food safe, easy to use - but it's derived from corn as opposed to oil. No brand of propylene glycol can deliver this level of performance for use in solar thermal systems.

This solar glycol is available in two different formulas, high temperature pre-mixed, and concentrate. Both are in stock and ready to ship, and are available in 5gl buckets, or 55gl drums.

Solar Corn Glycol - Concentrated

The SPP Corn Glycol is specifically designed for solar thermal applications, such as solar hot water, or solar space heating.

This solar glycol is completely non-toxic, safe for all types of solar heating applications, and is made from sustainable, bio-based raw materials. Unlike typical propylene or ethylene glycol - which is made from foreign oil or natural gas - this glycol is environmentally friendly, made from renewable resources, and domestically sustainable.

Because the corn glycol is safe, and considered food-grade, it's the perfect solution for freeze protection even in sensitive environments, such as schools, homes, and hospitals.

This corn glycol is manufactured and shipped in a concentrated form, which allows for superior freeze protection and flexibility. The concentrate is mixed in the field to the ratio you need - providing the freeze protection and mixture that's right for you and your customer.

 

 

Solar Glycol - High Temp

The SPP High Temperature Glycol is specifically designed for high temperature applications, such as encountered in the solar steamback system. This glycol is also perfect for other high temperature solar thermal applications, such as solar air conditioning, high-temp water, and others.

This solar glycol is completely non-toxic, and thus safe for all types of solar applications, and is made from sustainable, bio-based raw materials. Similar to the corn glycol, this solar glycol is made from renewable resources, and is domestically sustainable. This is in contrast to traditional glycols, such as propylene and ethylene glycols, which are manufactured using non-renewable fossil fuels, such as oil.

This glycol is completely safe for all environments, and considered food-grade. It's the perfect solution for applications requiring high temperature solar thermal systems, even in sensitive environments, such as nursing homes, hospitals, and schools.

 

This solar glycol is manufactured and shipped in a pre-mixed form at a 50:50 ratio. At this ratio, this glycol can withstand temperatures up to 350°F, while providing freeze protection down to -16.6°F.
