MPEG 1000 is a high molecular weight product that belongs to methoxy polyoxyethylene glycols. The product is intended mainly for the construction industry. The average molecular weight is 1000 g/mol. The product is a white solid. The compound is a polymer with high solubility in water and a slight odour. The active substance content in the product is about 100%.
The product is mainly used for the production of polycarboxylate ether (PCE) superplasticizers for concrete. It is used in esterification reactions, e.g. with methacrylic acid which is further subjected to a polymerization process. The resulting products are the main components of concrete admixtures that reduce the amount of batch water in cement concrete.
Comb polymers, resulting from emulsion polymerization using MPEG 1000, are used in paint and varnish production. They are dispersants for organic and inorganic pigments.
