What is POLYOX™?

POLYOX™ water soluble resins are high molecular weight poly ethylene oxide polymers.  They are non-ionic and range in molecular weight from 100,000 to over 8,000,000.  POLYOX™ water soluble polymers exhibit excellent water retention, binding, lubricity and film formation.  These properties as well as being listed on the EPA inert list make POLYOX™ an ideal choice for agricultural applications.

POLYOX™ for  Agriculture Applications

 

Agricultural Sprays

Higher molecular weight grades of POLYOX™ used in low concentrations can reduce the frictional drag of water by as much as 80% allowing agricultural sprays to be sprayed further thus covering more area in a shorter amount of time.  In addition, solutions containing POLYOX™ display excellent droplet size control and wet tack. For this reason agricultural sprays containing POLYOX have outstanding resistance to drift.  


Seed Tape & Seed Coatings

The thermoplastic, wet tack, and film forming nature of POLYOX™ Water Soluble Polymers make them an ideal binder for seed coatings and adhering seed to seed tape.  POLYOX™ is water soluble so seeds can release once planted so that germination and growth are not interfered with.  


Water Soluble Packaging

POLYOX™ can be used to make water soluble films that can be used for packaging.  These water soluble packages are great for easy handling of pre-measured doses of pesticides, fertilizers, and other solid agricultural formulations.  By pre-measuring doses you take out any guesswork and remove risk of exposure to harmful chemicals.
