Epolene Polymers

Epolene® polymers are medium- to low-molecular-weight polyethylene or polypropylene polymers that provide abrasion, moisture, and grease resistance when used in the plastics industry as PVC lubricants, processing aids, mold release agents, dispersion aids, and coupling agents. They are also widely used as base polymers for hot-melt adhesives and pavement-striping compounds as well as petroleum wax modifiers in candles, investment casting, cable filling, and various paperboard coatings. They are available in a wide viscosity range that allows for short set times, high gloss, and color retention. Many meet U.S. FDA food additive regulations for various indirect food contact applications.
