Water Soluble Resins:

Value-added Versatility

POLYOX™ Water-Soluble Resins are nonionic, high molecular weight water-soluble poly (ethylene oxide) polymers. Though they exhibit properties (binding, thickening, lubricity, adhesion and emollient performance) like other classes of water-soluble resins, a single POLYOX™ Resin can often contribute several important properties in a single formulation. They can also form association compounds with many other substances to achieve a wide variety of other valuable functions.

Benefits of using POLYOX™ In Industrial Applications
  • Wide ranging molecular weights from 100,000 to 8,000,000
  • Thermoplastic materials that are readily calendared, extruded, injection molded, or cast
  • High Binding Efficiency that easily burn off at low temperatures with little to no char
  • Cross-linkable to form gels that are highly water-retentive
  • High-Degree of Wet Tack makes them useful as wet adhesives with a non-tacky dried residue 
  • Viscoelasticity produces aqueous solutions with elastic behavior and can reduce spattering and misting potential
  • Many more!
