Epolene® N-10P Polymer

Epolene® N-10P is a low molecular weight polyethylene wax powder that is used to improve scuff resistance in coatings and inks and as a processing aid in plastic applications.
Product Overview
Epolene® N-10P is a medium density polyethylene wax powder that has a relatively low melting point and is used in printing inks, paper coatings, polyolefin color concentrates, and hot melt adhesives. Epolene® N-10P has a low coefficient of friction and helps to improve scuff resistance and gloss when incorporated into paper coatings and printing inks. It also has excellent wetting properties that enable it to act as a dispersant for pigments in color masterbatch. Epolene® N-10P is a wax powder that can be easily melt blended with other synthetic and natural waxes to improve tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and adhesion to fibrous surfaces.
