POLYOX™ WSR Coagulant

POLYOX™ WSR Coagulant water-soluble poly(ethylene oxide) polymer commonly used as a film former and rheology modifier in personal care and concrete applications.
Product Overview
POLYOX™ WSR Coagulant is a non-ionic, water-soluble poly(ethylene oxide) polymer with a molecular weight of 5,000,000. The lubricity provided by films made of POLYOX™ WSR Coagulant make it an ideal resin for the manufacture of lubricant strips used on razors. POLYOX™ WSR Coagulant is also a useful additive for concrete and cement applications. It imparts a highly pseudoplastic rheology to cement and concrete that help to decrease energy requirements for pumping and extrusion. POLYOX™ WSR Coagulant dramatically decreases the frictional drag of water making it an ideal additive for fire-fighting solutions.
