Microthene® FN 519-00

20 micron low density polyethylene powder with a melt index of 5. Flow enhanced version of Microthene FN 510.
Product Overview
Microthene FN 519-00 is a 20 micron ultra-fine spherical polyethylene powder that is mostly used as an additive in a broad range of specialty applications. FN 519-00 is a flow enhanced version of FN 510-00. It has small amounts of fumed silica to reduce bridging and clumping. Microthene powders offer the properties of polyolefin resins but in a microfine particle size making it suitable for dispersion in aqueous systems.
