polyethylene

 [pol″e-eth´ĭ-lēn]
polymerized ethylene, (—CH2—CH2—)n, a synthetic plastic material, forms of which have been used in reparative surgery.
polyethylene glycol a polymer of ethylene oxide and water, available in liquid form (polyethylene glycol 300 or 400) or as waxy solids (polyethylene glycol 1540 or 4000), used in various pharmaceutical preparations as a water-soluble ointment base. Polyethylene glycol is also used as a laxative.

polyethylene glycol

n.
Any of a family of high molecular weight liquids and waxes that are condensation polymers of ethylene glycol, are soluble in water and in many organic solvents, and are used in detergents, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals and as emulsifiers, lubricants, and plasticizers.

Sadara Chemical Company plans to build a polyethylene oxide diacrylate plant as part of a petrochemicals complex in Jubail Industrial City 2, Al Sharqiyah.
The hardener is prepared by a process comprised of reacting a mixture comprised of at least one epoxidized polyalkylene oxide selected from the group of epoxidized polyethylene oxides, epoxidized polypropylene oxides, epoxidized polyethylene propylene oxides and mixtures thereof; at least one epoxidized aromatic hydroxy compound selected from the group of bisphenol A epoxides, bisphenol F epoxides and mixtures thereof; and at least one aromatic hydroxy compound selected from the group of bisphenol A, bisphenol F and mixtures thereof, to form an intermediate product; and introducing an excess amount of polyamine sufficient for the reaction of one molecule of polyamine with each epoxy group in the intermediate product, and reacting the intermediate product with the polyamine.
