Epolene® E-10 Polymer

Epolene® E-10 is a low-density oxidized polyethylene wax. It is commonly used to make water based wax emulsions for floor polishes, textile softeners, and clay coatings.
Product Overview
Epolene® E-10 is an oxidized polyethylene polymer with low density and low softening point. It produces stable emulsions by both atmospheric and pressure methods. Epolene® E-10 is used in wax emulsions for water based floor polishes due to the outstanding slip resistance and durability it provides to the polish film. It is also used as a wax lubricant for clay coatings for paper.
