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 applications. For use in water based coatings, flexographic and gravure inks and overprint varnishes, which lowers the coefficient of friction (COF) and therefore improves: mar, abrasion, rub, scrub, and burnish resistance of coatings and inks. 

Use SDS Number 11461 to retrieve the safety data sheet using the SDS Finder.
