Epolene® E-20 Polymer

Epolene® E-20 is an oxidized polyethylene wax that is ideal for making wax emulsions for citrus fruit coatings.
Product Overview
Epolene® E-20 is an oxidized polyethylene polymer with medium density and low molecular weight. The short drying time, high gloss, and outstanding hardness of this wax make it the perfect polymer for fruit coatings and buffable floor polish. Epolene® E-20 is also a great extrusion lubricant for fractional melt HDPE and rigid PVC.
