Epolene® N-14 Polymer

Epolene® N-14 is a polyethylene wax that is commonly used as a mold release additive and lubricant in rubber processing.
Product Overview
Epolene® N-14 is a low molecular weight polyethylene polymer that is used as a mold release additive in rubber applications and improves the gloss of paper and coatings. Epolene® N-14 has a low coefficient of friction and improves the scuff resistance of paper coatings and printing inks when incorporated into the formulation. It can also be easily melt blended with other natural or synthetic waxes to increase tensile strength, abrasion resistance, and adhesion of the wax blend.
