CAS No.:





POLIkol 1500PF belongs to the polyoxyethylene glycol group, characterised by a wide spectrum of application properties. This product exhibits excellent softening, lubricating, solubilising, wetting, and anti-static properties. It is a white solid with a waxy consistency also offered in flake form.

POLIkol 1500PF meets the restricted quality parameters defined by the Pharmacy Code, collected and published in the latest edition of European Pharmacopoeia. Thanks to which it may be classified to the group of Macrogols. Macrogols are a pharmacopoeial name for polyethylene glycols which are used as one of additives for medicines, ointments, dermocosmetics or other pharmaceutical formulations.

Typically, high molecular weight macrogols in the form of wax are combined with liquid, low molecular weight polyethylene glycols, resulting in a greasy consistency that is a suitable base for ointments.

POLIkol 1500PF also has very good dispersing properties and good water solubility. Due to these characteristics, POLIkol 1500PF is used to make proper solution of active ingredients and assure good water solubility of final formulation. Because of its high molecular weight, POLIkol 1500PF can be added to the formulation with the aim of improving its rheological properties (an increase in viscosity).

Moreover, macrogols are safe, non-toxic, and are characterised by a lack of negative environmental classification
