Polyethylene oxide thickener. Molecular Weight 1,000,000 Yields viscosity of 400 to 800 cP at low addition levels.


Product Overview

POLYOX™ WSR N-12K is a water-soluble resin. It is based on a long chain nonionic polyethylene oxide polymer. The product has a high molecular weight of 1,000,000 with a viscosity of 400 to 800 cP at 2% level of use.


POLYOX™ WSR N-12K can provide thickening and binding properties at a low level of use. It can also function as a film former, lubricant, and anti-misting agent in lubricant formulations. POLYOX™ WSR N-12K is commonly used in cleaning solutions, lubricants, metalworking fluids, drilling fluids, and inks.

  • Cleaning Solutions: POLYOX™ WSR N-12K works as an effective thickener for household and institutional cleaner. It also provides emollient properties to cleaning consumer products.

  • Lubricants: POLYOX™ WSR N-12K provides anti-misting properties. It also improves lubricity in metalworking and general lubricant formulations.
