Microthene® FA 700-00

20 micron high density polyethylene powder with a melt index of 10.
Product Overview
Microthene FA 700-00 is a 20 micron ultra-fine spherical polyethylene powder that is mostly used as an additive in a broad range of specialty applications. Microthene powders offer the properties of polyolefin resins but in a microfine particle size making it suitable for dispersion in aqueous systems. FA 700-00 has the highest peak melting point of all the Microthene grades.
