Epolene® Polymers

Overview

Epolene® polymers are a line of medium to low molecular weight polyethylene & polypropylene waxes. Epolene® waxes are produced to specific physical properties and are commonly used in plastic, elastomer, & masterbatch compounding processing aids, mold release agents, dispersion aids, or coupling agents.  Epolene® is also used as a base resin for hot-melt adhesives, pavement striping, and paperboard coatings or as an additive in cable filling, candles, and investment casting molds. 

Epolene® polyethylene waxes range in physical properties but come in three main types: coatings (C), emulsifiable (E), and non-emulsifiable (N).  These three types offer a variety of molecular weights allowing for complete control over viscosity, gloss, color retention, and set time.  Most grades also meet FDA requirements for indirect food contact applications  

Problems Solved

Poor pigment dispersion in color masterbatch.
High torque and pressure during extrusion.
Incompatibility during compounding.
