Ethylene Dichloride (Formula : C2H4Cl2 ), is a chlorinated hydrocarbon, mainly used to produce Vinyl Chloride Monomer (VCM, chloroethene), the major precursor for PVC production. It is a colorless liquid with a chloroform-like odor. It is also used generally as an intermediate for other organic chemical compounds, and as a solvent.

  1. EDC is used primarily as a raw material in the manufacture of Vinyl Chloride Monomer (VCM). The vinyl chloride, in turn is used to manufacture Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) resin.
  2. EDC is also used as an intermediate in the manufacture of chlorinated and fluorinated compounds.
