A-C® 680

Low density Oxidized Polyethylene (LDOxPE) homopolymer in prill form for use in solvent borne coatings as a rheological aid. 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. It can also be used as an anti transpirant coating to delay fruit spoilage allowing longer storage and transport times. It also finds use as a metal release agent in PVC.
