Epolene® E-43P Polymer

Epolene® E-43P is a maleic anhydride grafted polypropylene wax. It is typically used as a coupling agent for polypropylene composites.
Product Overview
Epolene® E-43P is a medium molecular weight, maleic anhydride modified polypropylene polymer. The added functionality of Epolene® E-43P make it a great coupling agent for filled polypropylene and a great compatibilizer for plastic alloys and pigmented single plastic systems. Epolene® E-43P is the powdered version of Epolene® E-43. E-43P is also useful in hot melt adhesives due to improved adhesion to plastics and metals.
