Product Overview
Microthene FN 510-00 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.
