Low density polyethylene (LDPE) Homopolymer

Overview
Request Free Samples
Low density polyethylene (LDPE) homopolymer in a powdered form, for use in solvent borne coatings, heatset and liquid solvent borne inks, to improve surface properties such as rub, mar & abrasion resistance, by lowering the COF. It is also used as a gellant for hydrocarbon oils, a paraffin crystal nucleator in wax blends such as candles, and a viscosity diluent in HMAs. Can also be partially substituted for FT (Fisher Tropsch) Wax in adhesive applications without detracting from formulation properties. Is used as a dispersing agent in color masterbatch applications and also as a dispersing/carrier agent in masterbatch applications. In PVC applications it finds use as an external lubricant.
