A-C® 1702

Amorphous, grease like, low temperature, low density polyethylene (PE) homopolymer

Overview
Grease like, low temperature, completely amorphous, low density polyethylene (PE) homopolymer for use in solvent borne coatings; heat set, sheet fed solvent borne inks; and specialty digital and UV/EB inks to provide mar and rub resistance by lowering the coefficient of friction. Also used in lubricants to provide release. Will act as a plasticizer in paraffin based candles, especially large volume candles, to resist cracking.
