A-C® 656

Low density Oxidized Polyethylene (LDOxPE) homopolymer in prill form for use in solvent borne coatings as a rheological aid. It’s lower hardness makes it optimum for pourable or pumpable rheological dispersions. It can also be atmospherically emulsified for use in aqueous applications, such as textiles, lubricants, coatings and inks, to lower the COF and provide surface properties such as mar & abrasion resistance and increased slip.
