Ethylene glycol diglycidyl ether (also known as Quetol 651, EGDGE and EGDE) is a bifunctional water-soluble crosslinker for carboxyl, amine and hydroxyl functional polymers. Low chlorine content in our EGDGE makes it suitable for a wide range of applications such as the modification of fiber, adhesives, paper, and resin.

EGDGE is also used as a crosslinker in the development of biomaterials. EGDGE hydrogels are widely used in sustained drug delivery systems and chromatographic separation of viruses and proteins.
