Deliver optimal versatility with this product
Are you looking for an ingredient to optimize your formulations? CARBOWAX™ Polyethylene Glycol 4000 Flake is one of the most versatile chemical ingredients available to formulators and manufacturers and can be used in a wide range of applications.
This linear polymer can maintain softness of wood, provide excellent control of texture and viscosity in soaps and detergents and can function as a plasticizer, binder, carrier and lubricant.
CARBOWAX™ Polyethylene Glycols (PEGs), a family of water soluble linear polymers, are among the most versatile chemical ingredients available to formulators and manufacturers. They are available in a wide range of viscosities, weights from 200 to 8000 and melting points for optimal formulation flexibility in applications including ceramics, lubricants, soaps and detergents, and toilet bowl cleaners. By choosing a suitable product grade, you can achieve the desired balance of water solubility, hygroscopicity, vapor pressure, melting or freezing range, and viscosity.
