BELLEVUE, WA & MIDLAND, MI, March 21, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- As part of its marketing partnership with ChemPoint.com, The Dow Chemical Company has named the website as its distributor for PolyoxTM Water-Soluble Resin. Under terms of the agreement, ChemPoint provides marketing, sales, customer service and order fulfillment for U.S. customers requiring smaller volumes of material.

Versatile Polyox resins deliver outstanding binding, thickening, lubricity, water retention, and film formation performance for pharmaceuticals, personal care and cleaning products, mining, building materials, paper, and many more specialty applications. Polyox resins are nonionic, high molecular weight water-soluble polyethylene oxide polymers. With very high molecular weights, Polyox resins are viscoelastic, allowing their aqueous solutions to reduce spattering and misting potential.
