Polyethylene Glycol 400 Peg400 for Steroids Conversion
Polyethylene glycol (PEG) is a polymer made for ethylene oxide. It comes in almost any MW, from 200 to 60,000. 400 to 12,000 are the most common with 400 the most common for liquids and 2,500 for solid. (Anything over 800 to 1,000 is a solid at room temp.) It is nontoxic at any reasonable level. It is nonpolar while having lots of hydroxyl functionality. This makes it great for getting things to stay soluble in oil. Used a lot for compatibility reasons. Can also be used as a painless vehicle, instead of oil. Drawbacks include high viscosity and thermoplastic tendencies becoming more pronounced at the higher MWs. Also has mechanical properties (surface tension) that cause it to separate from oil. This may become less pronounced at the higher MWs but I have not had a chance to test this at this time.

Solutions requiring PEG and 190 Proof Alcohol
Step 1. Prepare a hot water bath. Boil water in microwave or on a pot. Once boiling starts remove from heat.
Step 2. Place PEG and powder in beaker.
Step 3. Place the beaker deep enough in to the water so that the hot water is level with the PEG and powder. Gently swirl or stir with a stir rod until solution is clear. Reheat water as needed.
Step 4. Allow PEG to cool some. Then add in your 190 proof alcohol. You don’t have to do this drop by drop but don’t just dump it in. Pour it in slowly.
Step 5. Stir or gently shake until mixed.
For recipes that do not require PEG.
Mix powder and 190 proof alcohol.
Stir with stir rod or shake. Most powders that do not require PEG will disolve no problem. If heat is needed follow the instructions for heating powders that use PEG. Reply With Quote
