Product Description

These emulsifiable modified low molecular weight polyethylene and polypropylene polymers have a low coefficient of friction and improve surface lubricity, slip and release properties as additives in plastics, coatings and polishes. Emulsions based on E-type polymers have high gloss, scuff and rub-off resistance. They are available in powder and pellet forms.​
