POLYETHYLENE GLYCOL (PEG 4000 (PH))
POLYETHYLENE GLYCOL (PEG 4000 (PH)) is a chemical product and Arena Petro Gas is in position to supply and export it directly from the top producers through its trading services according to the following specification and technical properties.
POLYETHYLENE GLYCOL (PEG 4000 (PH)) is a synthetic chemical compound derived from petroleum that has many applications in various industries.
One of the main uses of PEG 4000 (PH) is as a laxative for the treatment of constipation and fecal impaction. It works by forming hydrogen bonds with water molecules, which prevents the reabsorption of water in the gastrointestinal tract, causing water retention in the stool and increasing osmotic pressure. This softens the stool and stimulates bowel movements. PEG 4000 (PH) usually takes orally as a powder mixed with a liquid, and it is generally safe and well-tolerated.
Another use of PEG 4000 (PH) is as a reagent for the fusion of myeloma and spleen cells to form hybridomas, which are cells that produce monoclonal antibodies. It facilitates the fusion by disrupting the cell membranes and allowing them to merge. it packages as 2-gram aliquots in amber vials that protect the product from light.
PEG 4000 (PH) also uses as a mold release agent and plasticizer in various industries, such as adhesives, coatings, cosmetics, textiles, and pharmaceuticals. It acts as a lubricant and humectant, improving the flow and stability of the products. PEG 4000 (PH) can also chemically modify to control its properties, such as molecular weight, viscosity, solubility, and biocompatibility.
