PEG-4000 and 6000 are used as excipients in pharmaceutical industry, preparation of suppository and paste, coating agent in paper industry to increase luster and smoothness of paper, additive in rubber industry to increase lubricity and plasticity of rubber products, reduce power consumption in processing and prolong service life of rubber products.
It can be used as matrix in medicine and cosmetics industry to adjust viscosity and melting point, lubricant and coolant in rubber and metal processing industry, dispersant and emulsifier in pesticide and pigment industry, antistatic agent and lubricant in textile industry.
Due to the plasticity of PEG and its ability to release drugs, high molecular weight PEG (PEG4000, PEG6000, peg8000) is very useful as an adhesive for tablet manufacturing. Peg can make the surface of tablets glossy and smooth, and not easy to be damaged. In addition, a small amount of high molecular weight PEG (PEG4000, PEG6000, peg8000) can prevent the adhesion between sugar coated tablets and between bottles.
