Poly(ethylene) Oxide


Our Poly(ethylene) Oxide water-soluble polymers are offered under the POLYOX™ brand name. They provide binding, thickening, lubricity, water retention, and film formation benefits to deliver excellent performance in a variety of applications – such as pharmaceuticals, mining, paper and cleaning products. They're also thermoplastic materials that are readily calendared, extruded, injection molded, or cast, to provide even greater formulation and processing flexibility.
