Polywax™ 500 polyethylene by Baker Hughes is a fully saturated homopolymer of ethylene that exhibits a high degree of linearity and crystallinity. Acts as a rheology modifier for hot melt adhesives. Exhibits sharp melt point, fast recrystallization, low melt viscosity, excellent heat stability and resistance to chemical attack. Provides limited solubility in solvents, hardness relative to molecular weight as well as fast set time from melt phase. Also offers fast migration to surface.
