Water-soluble polymers with added functionality

POLYOX™ water-soluble Poly(ethylene) Oxide polymers are non-ionic, with a high-molecular weight. They exhibit many properties typical of other classes of water-soluble polymers – lubricity, binding, water retention, thickening and film formation.

  • Thermoplastic, and can be readily calendared, extruded, injection molded or cast
  • Forms flexible but tough films resistant to most oils and greases
  • High molecular weight means it’s viscoelastic, reducing spattering and misting of aqueous solutions
  • Forms association compounds with many other substances to achieve a wide variety of additional formulation properties
