polyethylene glycol

n. Abbr. PEG
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.

Of these, sodium bentonite and polyethylene oxide are preferred.
Effective DAF treatment of highly contaminated mechanical and secondary fiber water sources usually requires the use of bentonite clays with polyacrylamide flocculants or phenolic resins with polyethylene oxide polymers to remove the interfering colloidal contaminants," Tremont said.
