POLIkol 200 belongs to the group of polyoxyethylene glycols (PEG with an average molecular weight of 200). INCI: PEG-4. The product is a colourless liquid well soluble in water, with a relatively low viscosity and freezing point below 0 ° C. It is characterized by the best alkali resistance among PEGs available in the offer and strong hygroscopic properties. In addition, it exhibits excellent dissolution capacity of the active ingredients.
POLIkol 200 is characterized by a wide range of application properties. It has excellent plasticizing, lubricating, solubilizing, moisturizing and anti-electrostatic properties. In cosmetic formulations POLIkol 200 acts as a solubilizer and a humectant, binding water. It can be effectively used to modify the rheology of active substances.
Thanks to its anti-electrostatic properties, it is used in industrial cleaning and metalworking. POLIkol 200 is used for hardening concrete and cement mortars, and by reducing water losses in mixtures ensures stronger bonding of the material. With appropriate dosing, it increases the mechanical strength of the hardened concrete. It can be used in the self-curing concrete.
In addition, POLIkol 200 has a positive opinion from the FDA (Food and Drug Agency), which allows the use of polyethylene glycol in the form of a non-direct food additive based on CFR 21: 175.105, 175.210, 176.180, 176.200.
POLIkol 200 can be used in the design of self-hardening concretes. The product is also a specialist agent for cleaning reactors after reclamation residue in the production of polyurethanes. Thanks to its use, cleaning the reactor is more efficient.
It should be remembered that the product must be used in accordance with the definitions provided by the organization, not exceeding the maximum permitted dose.
