Epolene® E-25 Polymer

Epolene® E-25 is a maleic anhydride modified polypropylene wax. The maleic anhydride functionality make it an excellent coupling agent for polypropylene composites.
Product Overview
Epolene® E-25 is a polypropylene polymer with maleic anhydride functionality. The added functionality of Epolene® E-25 make it exceptional at boosting the compatibility of polypropylene blends with reinforcing fillers like talc, glass, and metal. The maleic anhrydride functionality in E-25 also provides improved adhesion to most surfaces making this polymer a great choice for hot melt adhesives.
