Low density polyethylene (LDPE) Homopolymer in a pastille 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 in PVC applications where it is used as an external lubricant.
Product is supplied as a white pastille, essentially free of foreign material. It is packaged in 25 kg Kraft bags and shipped on pallets, 40 bags to a pallet, net weight 1,000 kgs, and stretch-wrapped. Pallet loads are approximately 1.29m long, 1.12m wide, and 1.44m high (51 inches x 44 inches x 57 inches).
