Epolene® EE-2 Polymer

Epolene® EE-2 is a low molecular weight polyethylene wax. It's physical properties make it useful as an asphalt modifier.
Product Overview
Epolene® EE-2 is a medium density, low molecular weight oxidized polyethylene polymer. The low viscosity and low softening point of Epolene® EE-2 lend to a short drying time, good gloss, and exceptional hardness. It can be easily mixed with all types of asphalts and provides improved durability and appearance to the final product.
