ACumist® A-6

Micronized high density, oxidized polyethylene (HD OX PE) homopolymer

Overview
Smaller particle size, Micronized Oxidized High Density Polyethylene Homopolymer. Used for thin film applciations. For use in water based coatings, flexographic and gravure inks and overprint varnishes, which lowers the COF and therefore improves: mar, abrasion, rub, scrub, and burnish resistance of coatings and inks.
