A-C® 5150

A-C® 5150 is an ethylene acrylic acid copolymer with high acid number, relatively low hardness and is supplied as a non-tacky solid. It is used in coatings and adhesives to increase the adhesion and tack of the final formulated product. In plastic applications it is used to increase flow and lubricity. It is also used to help dispersion of pigments, fibers, flame retardants and other additives into plastics.
