Epolene® N-35 Polymer

Epolene® N-35 is a low molecular weight polyethylene wax that is used as a mold release aid and pigment dispersant in plastic applications.
Product Overview
Epolene® N-35 is a LDPE wax that has a good wetting and a low coefficient of friction. These properties make it a useful as a pigment dispersion and mold release aid in plastics applications like masterbatch. Additionally, Epolene® N-35 is also used in printing inks and paper coatings to improve scuff and rub resistance and improve gloss. In hot melt adhesive applications Epolene® N-35 is used to modify viscosity and reduce sag.
