Coatings
Glyoxal is used to produce glycoluril based amino crosslinking resins for powder coatings, liquid can and coil coatings. It emits less formaldehyde and produce more flexible films compared to other amino crosslinkers.

Electronics
Glyoxal is a building block for the glycidated phenol compound (tetraglycidyl ether of tetrakis(4-hydroxyphenyl) ethane). This increases stability in epoxy laminates and molding compounds.

Oilfield
The sulfur scavenging property of Glyoxal to act as a H2S scavenger and glyoxal-crosslinked polymers (hydrocolloids) can be used to improve viscosity in oil-drilling fluids. 

Paper 
Polymers crosslinked with Glyoxal are used to enhance the wet/dry strength and enable the efficient coating of paper.

Personal care
In cosmetics, Glyoxal-crosslinked polymers (hydrocolloids) improves the viscosity.

Textile
As a crosslinker, Glyoxal is used in antiwrinkle and softening polymer. It is also used as a crosslinker in leather tanning processes

Water
The biocidal effect of glyoxal is used in water treatment

Other
Glyoxal is used to crosslink a wide range of other polymers, including starch, cellulose, proteinaceous material, polyacrylamide and polyvinyl alcohols. In disinfection applications, it is a biocidal active ingredient. Finally, Glyoxal can be used in wood hardening application for improved moisture resistance.
