All the properties you want in one convenient product

Offered as a viscous, water-white liquid, CARBOWAX™ Polyethylene Glycol 600 combines water solubility, nonvolatility, inertness and lubricity into one product.

With its first-class solvent action and ingredient compatibility, CARBOWAX™ Polyethylene Glycol 600 delivers the versatility needed to fit a wide range of products.

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.
