Product Description

These highly branched, medium molecular weight polyethylene polymers are available in powder and pellet forms. As process aids in compounding applications, they reduce shrinkage and tackiness and improve mixing and can be used as viscosity modifiers in adhesive and coatings. As additives to paraffin waxes, they increase toughness, aid in gloss retention, and abrasion resistance, and reduce flaking and cracking.​
