POLYOX™ WSR 1105

POLYOX™ WSR 1105 is a non-ionic poly(ethylene oxide) polymer that is typically used as a thickener and binder in coatings, inks and adhesives.
Product Overview
POLYOX™ WSR 1105 is a non-ionic, water-soluble poly(ethylene oxide) polymer with a molecular weight of 900,000. POLYOX™ WSR 1105, like other POLYOX™ grades, is a hydrocolloid and will swell to form a gel when put in contact with water. This property makes it an excellent thickener for water based systems. Solutions containing POLYOX™ WSR 1105 have out standing wet tack making it an important additive for adhesive formulations. In addition, POLYOX™ WSR 110 solutions are highly viscoelastic and when added to a coating will help to improve cling and anti-sag properties.
