Epolene® N-15 Polymer

Epolene® N-15 is a polypropylene wax that is used as a pigment dispersant in color masterbatch and toner compounds.
Product Overview
Epolene® N-15 is a low molecular weight polypropylene polymer used in color concentrates. It's excellent compatibility with plastic grade polypropylene allows for improved pigment dispersing properties in polypropylene fiber applications. Epolene® N-15 is also used in coatings and inks to improve blocking and scuff resistance. In hot melt adhesives it serves as a base resin or a modifying resin with good adhesion to fibrous surfaces.
