A-C® 316A

High density Oxidized polyethylene (HD OX PE) homopolymer

Hard, high drop point, high density, oxidized polyethylene (HDOxPEs) homopolymer, in finer powder form than A C 316, for use in waterborne coatings and inks, overprint varnishes, polishes and textiles to improve surface properties including mar and abrasion resistance by lowering the coefficient of friction. In textiles, this can help improve sewability and fabric cutting, helping to extend cutting machine lifetime. Its acid number of 16 allows it to be emulsified into water. Can also provide heat resistance to hot melt adhesives (HMAs). In addition, may be used as a metal release agent for PVC processing and is a fusion control for PVC formulations. It will not affect clarity in transparent PVC applications. Very effective for use in processing PVC regrind.
